 IFLA’s Science & Technology Libraries Section jointly with the Reference & 
Information Services Section and the Audio Visual & Multimedia Section issue a 

Theme: “Moving Beyond Traditional Collections & Services: Supporting Science in 
Innovative Ways”

Background: The Science & Technology Section invites proposals for papers to be 
presented at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Athens, Greece 
from August 24-30, 2019.  This two-hour open session is co-sponsored by the 
IFLA Reference & Information Services and the Audio Visual & Multimedia 

As Science Libraries become more incorporated in centralized library service 
plans and organizational structures there are concerns about how the 
specialized information needs of scientists and science students are met. As 
science educates the public, influences new policies and ways of thinking, 
science librarianship at all levels is dedicated to providing accurate and 
informed content to a diverse citizenry.

Reference and outreach services are critical to that mission. Science 
librarianship requires a model for delivering relevant and critical services at 
time of need that are evidence-based and sufficiently documented. What that 
model constitutes in the future continues to change as science reference 
explores different models that are embedded, data driven, and emphasize 
information sources such as games, multimedia formats, makerspaces, eSports, 
patents, mapping (genomic and other spatially-based forms), and other ways of 
conducting STEM or STEAM activities and learning.

This session will promote innovations that support science knowledge 
acquisition and generation with creative service models and invites 
presentations that can share new visions from different types of libraries 
including public libraries, school libraries, all levels of academic and 
research libraries, where services for reference, outreach, instruction and 
collections are central activities advancing scientific understanding.
