2016 Call for Papers

The Bibliography Section would like to announce its panel program for IFLA WLIC 2016: Opening the National Bibliography: Transforming Access to Data and Building Connections.
National bibliographies provide a valuable record of the intellectual output of a country and its cultures. Formatting national catalog data to be harvestable, or presenting it as linked data, opens these resources to scholars worldwide. In this panel session, we invite papers discussing how national bibliographies have been made more accessible and the possibilities opened by that accessibility. Papers can address methodology for providing harvestable and/or linked data, how national bibliographies can be used in creating new knowledge, and national bibliographic data can be used in scholarly communication.

Please submit paper proposals of less than 500 words by *10 February 2016* to:

Rebecca Lubas

Please also feel free to ask questions about the scope of your proposal.

Seeking Your Ideas on Bibliography!


The Bibliography Standing Committee would like to invite posts on topics related the use, management, and role of national bibliographies. We welcome posts from anyone interested; you do not need to be a member of the Standing Committee! Our goal is to have at least one post per month, and generate discussion.

We’d especially welcome posts on the papers presented at our IFLA WLIC session this past August, about the Best Practice document, and national libraries’ role in linked data, but additional ideas are highly encouraged.

If interested, please contact Rebecca Lubas to talk about your ideas and scheduling. Posts need not be long, just full of interesting ideas on bibliography!
