About the Conference

The modern librarianship is shaped by a diverse, highly skilled, and qualified workforce that is better equipped to uphold and advance the profession’s fundamental principles. Users of today interact with technology in an environment that is characterized by rapid innovation, strong teamwork, and unparalleled individual contribution via digital media such as social media and e-publishing. Because of the impact of emerging technologies, libraries have seen substantial changes in terms of resources and services in recent years. Technology is growing more and more interwoven with society as it continues to evolve.

The way we live, work, study, and communicate is changing as a result of the Internet, World Wide Web, mobile phones, digital television, and many other new electronic information and communication technologies (ICTs). Will the way we manage our lives be impacted by technology, and how will it impact the management of libraries?

The employment of new, cutting-edge technologies in libraries is one of the biggest developments we anticipate. An international conference has been contemplated to address information services supply for the next generation libraries in the context of emerging library technologies, taking into account these advancements and their effects on libraries.
