Conference theme: Keeping Pace with Changes


  •   strategies for library development
  •   e-books; e-services
  •   mass digitization projects; open access
  •   library services for children and young adults
  •   library collection as cultural heritage
  •   improvement of cooperation among local and regional library associations

Electronic resources have brought irreversible changes to creation, distribution, and delivery of information, amount of which will undoubtedly grow in the upcoming years.
E-book has redefined the generally known categories in the processes of creating and publishing. It has changed the role and activities of libraries, and has also stimulated the European library legislation to search for new models.
In order to improve services and access to the traditional and digital collections by using the new technologies, libraries have developed e-services and e-products, varying from online catalogs, digital collections for special needs and purposes and institutional repositories, to social networks, and the semantic web.
Traditional library services for children and young adults have been expanded through various innovations, e-services, and new media.
In Croatia, the leading role of libraries as non-profit educational, cultural and scientific institutions has been additionally emphasized in the big national digitization projects, which guarantee access, presence, and permanent deposit of digital content in Croatian, or referring to Croatian cultural heritage and scientific achievements in the global digital environment. The leading role of libraries has also been emphasized in the question of open access which is considered a realistic and achievable mode of free and open scientific communication
Informational, cultural, and educational roles of libraries in Croatia require new strategic documents, necessary for work and development in the new digital environment, while their role in heritage preservation requires new approaches and solutions for registration of library materials as movable cultural heritage.
In order to fulfill the needs of democratic and civil society, as well as knowledge and innovation based society, which perceive libraries as their central service and fundamental resource, libraries need all kinds of support, especially technological, financial and legislative. Libraries play a unique role in knowledge dissemination in the information society based on inclusiveness and equality in accessing the digital content and common European information space, as well as on investment in scientific research and innovation.
