Call for papers WLIC 2018 - Audiovisual and Multimedia Section joint session with Information Technology Section

By Mikael Johansson

The IFLA Audiovisual and Multimedia Section, joined by the Information Technology Section, invite interested professionals to submit proposals for the open session to be held during IFLA WLIC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 24-30 August 2018.

The Session will focus on the theme "Video Games: Winning strategies for libraries".

Video games have evolved from an entertaining pastime and academic, public, school, and special libraries have embraced video games and engaged their users with creative and innovative methods.

Libraries are tasked with keeping these ephemeral games accessible for today’s and tomorrow’s players to enjoy and appreciate.

Paper proposals are encouraged that address the many challenges and opportunities of creating, collecting, cataloging, providing, preserving, and storing video games in libraries.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 31 January 2018.

Details and more information are available on the IFLA WLIC 2018 website of call for papers,
