LTR call for papers IFLA WLIC 2016
The IFLA Library Theory and Research Section (LTR) is pleased to invite submissions for its forthcoming open session in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
Theme: Participatory Projects in Libraries: connecting collaborative communities
Aim and Scope of the Session
The theme “Participatory Projects in Libraries: connecting collaborative communities” reflects the global theme of the IFLA 2016 Congress, “Connections. Collaboration. Community.”
How are libraries reconnecting with the public and demonstrating their value and relevance in contemporary life?
How are libraries inviting their communities to actively engage as cultural participants, not passive consumers?
The LTR Section would be most interested in hearing from libraries around the world about the research methodology used to investigate on these issues.
