Invited Speaker Talks

Information Organization has been one of the main functions of libraries, whatever the kind is. The emergence and development of technology have seen to be a driving force and a great tool in improving this function. With so many roles that libraries and librarians undertake to make them more relevant with the changing times, this part of library work should not be underestimated, especially in the new normal. Such introduction to technology has brought various ways and processes on how libraries and librarians deal with information.

The program committee invites notable speakers in the field highlighting these practices in a changing world. The topics include:

  1. Bibliography
  2. Cataloging and Classification Policies and Practices (including RDA (Resource Description and Access); FRBR/FRAD (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records/ Functional Requirements for Authority Data)
  3. Metadata Librarianship (including Linked Data, Semantic Web, Vocabulary Systems)
  4. Digital Collections and Curation
  5. Digital Humanities Analytics
  6. COVID-19 Impact on Information Organization
