Information landscapes for a learning society

Networking and the future of libraries 3

29 June - 1 July 1998

This international conference is to be held on Monday 29 June, Tuesday 30 June and Wednesday 1 July 1998 at The University of Bath. It is the third in the series Networking and the future of libraries and it marks the 21st anniversary of UKOLN and its antecedent organisations at the University of Bath.

This major conference takes as its starting point the construction of 'information and learning landscapes'. The four main sessions are:

  • Information architectures: constructing the digital library
  • Information landscapes: the accommodation of knowledge
  • Information and the public sphere: an informed citizenry
  • Information exchanges: the library, the network and the future

The language of the conference will be English.

The location of the conference is the University of Bath which occupies an attractively landscaped site situated on one of the hills surrounding the historic city of Bath. Bath is world famous as the Roman town of Aquae Sulis and for its 18th century Georgian crescents and parades and is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
