New Paradigms for Libraries

The 8th International Bielefeld Conference with the title of “Academic Library and Information Services: New Paradigms for the Digital Age” is going to focus on some of the new functionalities of libraries and some areas of works for librarians in 21st century. In the website of the conference there are interesting comments on this issue including:
“Librarians need to facilitate better access to the whole range of information available on the Web, including material found in digital libraries, institutional repositories, Virtual Learning Environments, mailing lists and weblogs … Librarians will have a role as developer, provider or agent”. This is the link to the Bielefeld Conference.
