ASSESSING LIBRARIES AND LIBRARY USERS AND USE
16 – 20 June 2014, Zadar, Croatia
Web site: http://ozk.unizd.hr/lida/
Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) is a biennial international conference that focuses on the transformation of libraries and information services in the digital environment. In recognition of evolving online and social technological influences that present both challenges and opportunities, “ASSESSMENT” is the theme for LIDA 2014. The conference theme is divided into two parts. The first part addresses advances in qualitative assessment methods and practices and the second part covers assessment methods involving alternative metrics based on social media and a wider array of communicative activities, commonly referred to as “altmetrics.” While qualitative methods have a long tradition of application, altmetrics are a set of new approaches to filtering information and to evaluating scholarly communication and research, with possible application to libraries as well. LIDA 2014 brings together researchers, educators, and practitioners from all over the world in a forum for personal exchanges, discussions, and learning, made memorable by being held in an enchanting and spectacularly beautiful city on the shore of the Adriatic Sea.
The main topics of the conference are:
1) Qualitative methods in assessing libraries, users, & use: applications, results.
2) Altmetrics – new methods in assessing scholarly communication and libraries: issues applications, results.
The paper (extended abstract) submission deadline is 15 January 2014. Deadlines for workshops, demonstrations, and the doctoral forum can be found on the LIDA website: http://ozk.unizd.hr/lida/contribution/#deadlines.
