The IFLA Knowledge Management Section invites proposals for its open session to be held in Cape Town, South Africa in August 2015.

Theme: Change and sustainability – Breaking paths for a world of balance

The Lyon Declaration was launched at the IFLA congress in Lyon in August 2014. It recognizes that access to information and the skills to use it effectively are required for sustainable development. The KM Open Session will provide an opportunity to share projects that support the goals of the Lyon declaration and address the ways in which KM is being used to make the future open.

The IFLA KM Section provides an international platform for professional communication and understanding of the significance of KM for libraries. It gives a voice to KM on a global scale and follows the developments in KM, promoting its practical implementation within the global library community.

Papers presenting innovative projects, experience, initiatives or services with a strong collaborative cross-border or international dimension are preferred. Papers should reflect the 2015 IFLA Cape Town conference theme “Dynamic Libraries: Access, Development and Transformation”.

Please refer to the IFLA WLIC 2015 website for full details.
