CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

Libraries Without Walls 4 The Delivery of Library Services to
Distant Users: Distributed Resources - Distributed Learning

An international conference organised by CERLIM - The Centre for
Research in Library and Information Management

Aegean Island of Lesvos, Greece

14 - 18 September 2001 Cost GBP 345


The fourth Libraries Without Walls conference, to be held in
Lesvos, Greece from September 14th -
18th 2001, continues the tradition of the LWW Conferences by
bringing together international
perspectives on the delivery of library services to users distant from
the physical library. When
the first LWW Conference was held in 1995, the focus was
primarily on distance learning and
geographical dispersion. Since then, however, rapid advances in the development of ICT
(Information and Communications Technologies) based infrastructures and services have led to a
situation where many library users now routinely access services remotely - even when 'remotely'
means 'within sight of the library building'. As a previous conference attendee observed, "we are
all distance learners now".


LWW4 is concerned with innovative ways of delivering library services in this new environment.
Papers may present the results of research or of innovative practice, for traditionally LWW is a
meeting place for researchers and practitioners. Papers are invited which address the following
themes, but papers on any aspect of 'Libraries without Walls' will be considered.


Themes:


- The role of libraries in supporting lifelong learning.
- The role of libraries in supporting distance and open learning.
- Libraries' role in the development of information skills by remote users.
- Technical and managerial solutions to providing remote access to large collections of datasets,
including the design of portals and gateways.
- Design issues in the delivery of online services, including web interface design.
- Specific solutions to problems created by technology e.g. authentication, security.
- Collaborative approaches, especially between librarians and others (e.g. teachers).
- Strategic and policy dimensions, including national and regional perspectives.
- Meeting the needs of disadvantaged users and non-users.


All papers will be considered by a panel of independent referees.


Papers will be published by Library Association publishing, London, in the LWW Conference Series.


Presentations may take the form of full papers or workshop presentations of 40 minutes. To be
considered please submit an abstract (between 400 and 800 words) together with a 50 word
biographical statement and a 50 word synopsis of the paper. Please send submissions, preferably
by email (as text rather than an attachment), to the address below by 2nd March 2001. Applicants
will be informed whether their submissions have been selected during April 2001.


Please note that, as the conference does not aim to make a profit, we are unable to offer
discounted conference rates to presenters.


All enquiries should be addressed to the organisers:
