In keeping with the overall theme of the conference - 'Librarians, Citizens, Societies: Confluence of Knowledge' - the session aims to address the ways that libraries and information services in government agencies are putting in place projects where information and knowledge can be systematized and shared, contributing to solving particular public issues. Subjects of interest include experiences on information governance strategy in the public sector and digital library projects.

Each presenter will have approximately ten minutes to give a short presentation in English. Later, each presenter will lead a table discussion along with a member of the Government Libraries Section (GLS). Members of the audience will be free to attend a table according to their interests. The discussions may focus on the impact of these topics on their library services, how to replicate the plan / project introduced in the presentation, and more. The outcome of each group will be given by the Presenter or a GLS member who participated in the table.
