Call for papers

World Library and Information Congress: 81th IFLA General Conference and
15-21 August 2015, Cape Town, South Africa

Joint Open Session of IFLA’s
Section for Library Theory and Research (LTR), and
Section for Statistics and Evaluation (SSE)

“The Lyon Declaration in Action: Measuring the Impact of Access to
Information and Development”

As “the Lyon Declaration on Access to Information and Development” and
other IFLA declarations and manifestos have expressed, access to
information and the role of libraries and information institutions in
society are fundamental for the empowerment of people and the development
of society. In order to communicate the importance and value of these
issues to our society and to political authorities, we need to discuss and
evaluate how library associations and institutions, as well as
governmental/non-governmental agencies can best support the library sector.
What studies exist or how can we measure the impact of access to
information and development theoretically and statistically?

Our Joint Open Session during WLIC 2015 aims to share the promoted projects
and advocacy strategies, or the data and evidence that has been collected
and used with significant effect. The forum will enable library
professionals to productively share their experiences and resource  about
theoretical, practical and political approaches to advocacy.

For this significant session, we invite papers which present issues such
1.    Strategic promotion by national/international library associations in
cooperations with other institutions, or governmental/non-governmental
bodies in order to promote access to information as a development goal in

   2. Research or practical proposals on which kind of data from different
fields that can used to point out library effectiveness in contributing to
the Sustainable Development Goals.
   3. Qualitative and quantitative evidence relating to advocacy,
strategies, or new indicators to  measure outcomes
   4. Research project relating to access to information or access to
libraries and library materials
