World Library and Information Congress: 72nd IFLA General Conference and Council
"Libraries: Dynamic Engines for the Knowledge and Information Society"
20-24 August 2006, Seoul, Korea
In recent years, society has been changing rapidly with the onset of a new digital era and rapid developments in information technology and digital communications. It is time for libraries to work together with library scholars and professionals in order to fulfill the role and functions of 21st century information centres to meet the challenges of this fast moving world.
This theme has been chosen because we believe that libraries should act as a dynamic engine for the knowledge and information society. This is to be the mission of library scholars and professionals worldwide in the new era.
