Call for Papers: Social Science Libraries Section with Women & Information and Libraries Special Interest Group

By Nthabiseng Kotsokoane

The IFLA Social Sciences Libraries Section in collaboration with Women, Information and Libraries Special Interest Group is seeking papers on the topic of “Librarians as change agents: finding, using and managing data for social change”.

Librarians, by collecting, organizing, storing and providing access to data, serve as change agents, helping organizations and individuals access and use data in order to develop more successful societies.

We request submissions which demonstrate how  libraries and librarians, working with data, support and engage in social change that impact communities. In effect, has your library been actively engaged in providing data for social purposes?  If so, please share your story with us. All aspects of this topic will be considered.

Full details are available on the IFLA WLIC 2014 website.
