Call for proposal: presentation 2013

ELAG 2013 Conference presentations 29-31 May 2013, Ghent, Belgium

Are you proud of the work you have been doing? Do you think you know stuff you should share? Do you have a great idea ? Are you able to teach your colleagues something? Make yourself heard by doing a presentation at ELAG 2013!

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘The INSIDE-OUT Library’. This theme was chosen at last year’s conference, because we concluded:

  • Libraries have been focusing on bringing the world to their users. Now information is globally available.
  • Libraries have been producing metadata for the same publications in parallel. Now they are faced with deduplicating redundancy.
  • Libraries have been selecting things for their users. Now the users select things themselves.
  •  Libraries have been supporting users by indexing things locally. Now everything is being indexed in global, shared indexes.

Instead of being an OUTSIDE-IN library, libraries should try and stay relevant by shifting their paradigm 180 degrees. Instead of only helping users to find what is available globally, they should also focus on making local collections and production available to the world. Instead of doing the same thing everywhere, libraries should focus on making unique information accessible. Instead of focusing on information trapped in publications, libraries should try and give the world new views on knowledge.

Guidelines for conference presentations are available at:

However, being photographer, you have to first commit so much of your time deciding which model of photographic camera to buy as well as moving via store to store just so you might buy the most affordable camera of the brand you have decided to settle on.
