Call for Papers

The conference theme of ODOK 2010: »Wissenszugang und Informationskompetenz für alle?« (»Access to Knowledge and Information Competency for Everyone?«) will focus on the following aspects:

  • Access to paid content
    How can we continue ensuring access to paid content in spite of ever more limited budgets? (Big deals versus pay-per-view, collection building versus document delivery, business models)
  • Free access to content
    Can Open Access and institutional repositories be solutions to overcome or at least alleviate the dilemma of financing?
  • Access to knowledge through information brokers
    What is the role of librarians, information managers and information brokers in cataloging, indexing and linking content?
  • Information competency for everyone
    How can we train our staff? How can we reach our users? What is the role of terminologies?
  • Digital divide – access barriers and information strategies
    How can we narrow the digital divide? What are the strategies for a knowledge-based economy, a knowledge-based society and educational policies respectively? Expansion like Google or isolation like China?

Please send your proposals for papers and presentations including an abstract (approx. 1.200 characters) and a short author biography (around 250 characters) to by June 11, 2010 at the latest.

Successful proposals will be identified by the programme committee no later than June 18, 2010. Information about date and time of the talks and further details will be provided to the selected presenters in the frame of notification of acceptance.
