Information Technology Section Minutes 2011

By Alenka Kavčič-Čolić

The Information Technology section had another busy round of activities in the IFLA Congress in Puerto Rico 2011.

On the last SC meeting we decided to organize a core session on security issues in library systems (digital disasters). Some suggested titles: "Experiences and preparation for digital disasters", "IT Disaster planning for libraries", "Information Technology for Disaster Prevention and Disaster recovery", "Is your library security system safe?" The first stage of this work is preparation of a Call for Papers.

In addition to the core session we are planning to organize two different sessions in cooperation with other IFLA sections:

  1. The first one we are coordinating together with the Parliamentary Libraries Section will be dedicated to open source technology with focus on mobile device support and accessibility support. 
  2. The second one is on professional development in IT.
