Subject: ICDK 2011 : Call for Papers and Registration
We are pleased to announce the call for papers & registration of the forthcoming International Conference on Digital Libraries and Knowledge Organization (ICDK 2011) to be jointly organized by Management Development Institute (MDI) and Indian Association for Special Libraries & Information Centres (IASLIC) during 14-16 February 2011.
Background & Objectives
The advancement of Digital Library technologies provide an effective medium for Library & Information professionals to reach out to the users as never before. Same time, the rapid proliferation of the digital resources poses an unprecedented challenge to information professionals in generating efficient information services.
Libraries and information centres have long been involved in systematically organizing knowledge using techniques such as indexing and classification. These traditional knowledge organization tools lay the foundation for modern knowledge organization languages in the digital era. Knowledge organization systems can improve the organization of digital libraries and facilitate better access to their content. In a technology driven world, libraries play a crucial role in the fostering of knowledge for development.
The goal of the conference is to bring together librarians, information engineers, educators as well as experts and professionals in other related fields, from both India and aboard, to exchange ideas and share research findings about digital libraries and knowledge organization. The conference will generate valuable ideas for advancing services for knowledge creation through research.
The conference will focus on the theoretical and methodological issues involved in the qualitative, longitudinal study of the developers, users, policy makers, etc., involved in the development of digital libraries. It will provide a forum where these theoretical and methodological interests and insights may be advanced, exchanged, and debated, and where experiences with differing technologies, contexts, and methodologies may be compared and contrasted.
The specific objectives of the conference are:
· To provide a forum for scholars from different fields and backgrounds to share their views and perspectives on how to advance research in the area of digital libraries and knowledge organization tools and techniques.
· Identifying best practices in all the spheres of digital library development and knowledge organization.
· To provide strategic directions for the development of digital libraries
· To prepare a sustainable knowledge organization framework for digital library development
