BOBCATSSS 2013 | Bobcatsss 2013 Conference

BOBCATSSS 2013 | Bobcatsss 2013 Conference | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

1st Call for Papers BOBCATSSS 2013 ANKARA January 23-25, 2013

From Collections to Connections: Turning Libraries “Inside-Out”

 

The “21st BOBCATSSS Conference”, will take place in Ankara, Turkey, from 23-25
January 2013.

As it is known BOBCATSSS is an annual conference series that is traditionally
organized by students from European universities. At its 21st anniversary in
January 2013, BOBCATSSS is organized by students from two universities, being
Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University, Turkey and The
Royal School of Library and Information Science, Denmark.

 

From Collections to Connections: Turning Libraries “Inside-out” being the main
theme, BOBCATSSS 2013 aims to bring together students, professors and
specialists in the field of library and information science. Today, the world
of libraries and librarians is, more than ever, set for change. The focus is
shifting towards creating connections between people and developing online
resources, rather than static collections focused on the ph ysical book. Part
of information specialist’s role is to facilitate and help the users navigate
through this jungle, and in due course find our own place in this ever changing
world: How will the role of the librarians develop in the future? What will
happen with the classic libraries and librarians in the future? Will the
physical library disappear and only exist in the digital world? In the light of
these challenges, BOBCATSSS 2013 will be a meeting place between the
professionals of tomorrow, and researchers and teachers of today.

 

Conference Theme(s)

Main topics of the conference include (but are not limited to) the following:

Serving Society in a Digital Age

The world is changing faster than we know it and everybody has a say in the
matter. People are creating and sharing online in a way never experienced
before. They tweet, make Facebook updates and they want to make an impression.
How can we be sure that both new and old is preserved; what is important to keep
and what are the demands of the digital population?

 

Information Professionals as Change-Agents

Challenges demand creative thinking, entrepreneurship and innovation. One of
the digital challenges for the users is to be able to navigate through the digital
jungle of information. A part of being information professional is to help
people become e-literate. How do we meet the cha llenges in our profession and
how can we influence the agenda?

 

Designing New Library Spaces

Today it’s not enough for a library to be able to store collections. The space
itself has to be engaging and inspiring to facilitate the users need for
information, experiences and cultural inspiration. A plethora of libraries
being built today are not only new icons but are also trying to reach the above
mentioned goals in new ways. How can we the information professionals encourage
this trend?

 

Mobile Information Services

We live in a world of hand held devices, and information has to be instantly
accessible. More and more information is being digitized, and the volume alone
is staggering. One of the tasks of the information professional is to create
accessible designs, not compromising the content. Ideas can come from unlikely
sources however. Are we capable of listening outside our own ranks?

 

Developing New Competencies

Lifelong learning is a term easy to use, but hard to master. Which competencies
do we expect the users to need, and what can they expect from us? Are we, as
information specialists, sufficiently prepared to guide them? Are we able to
combine the need-to-have with the nice-to-have skills the patrons want to a
satisfying degree and how do we keep improving?

 

Submission of Papers

In addition to papers, short papers (pecha-kucha), posters and workshops on
conference topics and general papers on information management are also
welcome. Student papers and posters are very welcome. Please use the extended
format guide available on the Symposium web site to prepare your contributions
and proposals, and send them to us using the Conference Management Software
(conftool) at https://www.conftool.pro/bobcatsss2013

 

Requirements for Abstracts

An extended abstract is required. The abstract has to be in Word format (i.e. doc
or docx). There should be an author description (first name, surname,
department, degree, university, city, country, e-mail), a title, three to six
keywords. It should only contain plain text (no figures and no tables), and the
extended abstract should be between 500-700 words in Times New Roman, font size
10. Also, please include your references and your citations using APA style.
Please see detailed information on http://www.bobcatsss.net.

More information is available than most people can imagine. That's nothing new. Librarians have always shown people how to find it, evaluate it, and use it. Finding particular information and knowing how to evaluate its reliability is as difficult as ever.

Learning from YouTube, the first video—book published by the MIT Press, investigates these questions with a series of more than 200 texts and videos—"texteos." In scholarly fashion, it has ten "YouTours" composed of sequenced texteos making lengthier arguments. Unlike other books, however, video holds much of its meaning, many authors— students, YouTubers, and other scholars - share its (web) pages, it is written in a relatively informal voice, it cannot be printed and will appear only online, and content can and will be added. YouTube is its subject, form, method, problem, and solution.
