THEMA: Library (r)evolution: Promoting sustainable information practices
Over the last few decades there has been a growing awareness of environmental issues.
Ensuring long-term sustainability is increasingly urgent for our societies and the need for sustainable development initiatives and knowledge is now greater than ever. The concept of sustainable development encompasses attention to environmental challenges and global social inequalities, while maintaining a sound global economy. This understanding also gives rise to numerous related challenges but also possibilities for current information practices.
This conference aims to place focus on the identification and discussion of such challenges and possibilities by inviting contributions that explore the relationships between concepts and practices in the library and information science field and the sustainable development area.
