Committee on Standards Call for Papers for IFLA WLIC 2020, Dublin, Ireland
IFLA Standards and Professional Practices in Conversation
In line with the conference theme: “Inspire, Engage, Enable, Connect”, the IFLA Committee on Standards will be hosting a 2–hour Open Session during the 2020 conference in Dublin, Ireland. The theme of the Open Session is “IFLA Standards and Professional Practices in Conversation”.
We are soliciting papers that showcase the mutual effect and the reciprocal exchange between IFLA standards and professional practices; that is: how professional practices and needs inspired the development of some IFLA standards and guidelines, and how IFLA standards and guidelines inspired library practices or contributed to enhance them.
The papers may address one or more subthemes under any of three strands:
- Standards creation and making
- Collaborative approach to standards development
- Standards impacts
IFLA Standards concerned by this CFP encompass IFLA guidelines, IFLA bibliographic standards, best practices, kits, toolkits,… or any other technical documents produced by IFLA Professional Units in the aim to guide or to standardize libraries work.
- 17 March 2020 Deadline for submission of abstracts
- 17 April 2020 Decision notification
- 15 June 2020 Deadline for submission of full paper
Detailed information on subthemes under the three strands, and guidelines for submitting proposals are in the full Call for Papers.
