At the annual meeting, the new Standing Committee members were welcomed as well the incoming Chair, Secretary, and Information Coordinator (Edmund Balnaves, Lars Svensson, and May Chang respectively).  There was a full agenda including proposed publications, next satellite meeting, collaborative sessions and preparations for Lyons 2014 and Cape Town 2015.  The minutes of meeting are posted on our Minutes of Meetings webpage.  

The IT Section had a well-attended preconference on "User Interaction Built On Library Linked Data", and selected papers have been posted on our Conferences webpage.  

A lot of exciting events are in the works!  These are also described in the IT Section's Strategic Plan 2013-2015, and the Action Plan 2013-2014.

I would encourage all to visit the IFLA and IT Section webpages regularly for updates.  Please feel free to contact me ( if you have questions, comments, news and article contributions, etc.
