Bibliographic Control in the Digital Ecosystem, 8-12 Feb. 2021

The Conference aims to explore the new boundaries of Universal Bibliographic Control, which are widening in the digital ecosystem. Bibliographic control is radically changing because the bibliographic universe is radically changing: resources, actors, technologies, standards, and practices. As a "non-commercial public space" (IFLA Global Vision) – not only in a literal sense – libraries reaffirm a fundamental role also in the digital ecosystem.

Participation is free, but registration is required.

The programme and the registration form are available at the Conference web address https://www.bc2021.unifi.it.

The speakers have been selected from among the leading experts in the field. Papers will be presented in English or in Italian with slides in English and published on JLIS.it, issue 1, 2022.


The conference is organized by the University of Florence, Italy (SAGAS Dept., and University Library System), in cooperation with the IFLA Bibliography Section, the Italian Library Association (Associazione Italiana Biblioteche), and other institutions.
