The 83rd World Library and Information Congress will take place in Wrocław, Poland, from 19-25 August 2017.

“Libraries. Solidarity. Society.“  A straightforward yet powerful message that resonates with a singular truth in a country where the most powerful union movement of the past century was born and went on to change the face of history. A message from a robust library community that managed not only to survive the challenges of the transformation, but excelled and flourished in the new social and political reality. And now the network of our country‘s information providers is ready to bring you the most exciting and exceptional congress experience.

 

Special attention will be posed to the long-term preservation of digitised and born digital materials, which poses many challenges for heritage professionals globally, spanning from policy requirements to constantly changing technology infrastructures. Considering both, digitised and born digital materials, IFLA 2017 will explore practical examples of how institutions respond to these challenges. The Conference will highlight challenges and critical aspects, and identify case studies which provide solutions to ensure our digital heritage will survive for future generations and we avoid digital amnesia.
