[InetBib] IFLA WLIC 2019 pre-conference satellite meeting: Data intelligence in libraries, 22 – 23 August 2019, Frankfurt

IFLA WLIC 2019 pre-conference satellite meeting
Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Frankfurt
22 – 23 August 2019
Registration fee: €60

The ability to derive insight and intelligence from data is an important 
requirement for all organisations operating in a data-intensive environment, 
none more so than in libraries.
The IFLA WLIC 2019 Big Data SIG preconference satellite meeting investigates 
the underlying considerations for administering scholarly, scientific and 
operations data in libraries.  It does so from the perspective of the human 
agent – the library professional and library user – and from that what the 
artificial agent needs to infer and learn from data:
•       the requirement for timely and insightful management information 
derived from library data generated by the use of online resources and library 
•       the skills required by the information professional to derive insight 
from data, as well as the skills and techniques needed to use, wrangle and 
visualize data;
•       the infrastructures, frameworks and applications on which data 
gathering, cleaning, analysis and visualization is done;
•       the dependency of machine agents on reputable and curated scholarly 
data to derive intelligence from it through a process of knowledge engineering, 
and the role of libraries in making such data findable and available (open, 
linked and liberated);
•       the professional issues of data librarianship in transforming library 
collections into rich sources of scientific data.
Please join us in discussing these topics on 22 & 23 August 2019 at the German 
National Library in Frankfurt. For more information, and to register, please
