BIALL call for papers, Dublin study weekend 2008

BIALL have sent out their call for papers for the Dublin study weekend, Thursday 12th – Saturday 14th June 2008.

The theme is:

BEYOND THE PALE

Planning for the Next Information Generation

Topics they’d like to cover include:

The future impact of digitisation of data

Probable trends in respect of electronic resources

How does information become knowledge

The growth of globalisation of legal resources

Will librarians be needed in 2010 ?

You know, I’m even actually considering submitting for a parallel session…what’s the point of being a Web Monkey if I can’t share the fun? Now, to try and work out a topic that I know enough about, that’s useful, and that I can make reasonably entertaining…any ideas?

  1. Jennie I think the topic of will there be any Librarians in 2010 is an interesting one. There have been several articles recently about Corporate Librarians being replaced by web applications.There are also other challenges to the profession like companies that specialise in outsourcing Library Services.
