The classical library is connected with its place, a place given by the building, which provides a home for knowledge. But the place is opening up continuously, the conventional limitation of the room fades with the digitalization of the media and whole living environments. ePublishing is only the first step to a mobile library.
How and of course where the libraries are ‘moving’ within this development is the theme of the 36th conference European Library Automation Group. With the motto “Libraries everywhere” the ELAG 2012 is looking for future trends and developments. The subthemes of the conference are giving a hint, what in particularly will be discussed: Libraries in the cloud, mobile libraries, open and linked data, augmented reality and research data.
The organization committee of the conference has published a call for proposals for presentations, workshops and bootcamps, which continues to run until 2th of February 2012. In the program will be time for lightning talks as well, the registration will be on location. The ELAG 2012 takes place from the 15th until 18th of May 2012 in Palma de Mallorca at the Universitat de les Illes Balears.
