Registration Available for the:

International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions
Science Libraries Section Satellite Conference
Disappearing disciplinary borders in the social science library -
global studies or sea change?

University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada
6-7 August 2008

Website: http://ilabs.inquiry.uiuc.edu/ilab/ssls/
Registration: https://www-s.continuinged.uiuc.edu/conferences/index.cfm?formid=fe669d8c-65b3-ec4a-e580-66afc57af2eb

Theme and Objectives

Over the past decade, the nature of social science research and
scholarship has undergone shifts that have blurred the traditional
disciplinary boundaries as research attempts to grapple with phenomena
and issues that require interdisciplinary knowledge and collaboration.
For example, a growing number of institutions and scholars are
venturing into the arena of global studies and globalization studies.
Situated in economics, political science, policy studies, and other
discrete fields of the social sciences, global studies encompass both
the perception and reality of an interconnected world society. The
multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary nature of studies and
resources in this and similar emerging disciplines draws upon and
influences knowledge in the natural sciences, social sciences, and
policy studies, spanning the entire spectrum of IFLA interests,
including agricultural libraries, information literacy programs,
digital libraries, government libraries, information technology,
health and biosciences libraries, and professional development, and
while covering all of the world's geographic regions.

Given the changes within the social sciences as they have
traditionally been defined, how can academic and special libraries
continue to provide services and resources to researchers who are
working on necessarily interdisciplinary research questions within the
constraints of organizational structures (universities, libraries,
associations, and journals) that can't easily support this work?

Conference Venue

The conference will be held in Toronto, Canada. The venue includes the
University of Toronto Robards Library and the University Faculty Club.
A block of rooms have been reserved at the Toronto Holiday Inn
Midtown, 280 Bloor Street West, which is very nearby.

Registration Cost

$80.00

The fee will cover a set of the published conference presentations,
lunch, mid-morning and mid-afternoon refreshments, and the conference
dinner. Registration options will include registration for the full 2
day conference and single day registration. An optional tour package
at the conclusion of the conference will also be available.
