The Israeli National Organizing Committee, with the approval of the Professional Board of IFLA, has chosen the theme "INFORMATION FOR COOPERATION: CREATING THE GLOBAL LIBRARY OF THE FUTURE" for the 66th IFLA General Conference in Jerusalem.
The Subtopics are:
|The enormous potential for international cooperation in the exchange
and utilization of information which today's technology offers, and tomorrow's
technology promises, presents a great opportunity to library and information
professionals. The growing demand for bibliographic exchange, multicultural
Internet resources, research unhampered by geographic or linguistic limitations,
and cross- cultural networking, both in the sense of online technology
and offline partnerships, is a challenge to libraries which must be addressed
and which should be welcomed.
The Global Information Infrastructure which is developing and which will surely be in place early in the 21st century, will require information professionals with a sense of obligation both to their national needs and to the larger goals of the international community to digitize, navigate, distribute and preserve all the world's knowledge for all the world's people.
To facilitate communication with prospective participants in IFLA 2000
Jerusalem, we have
designated a liaison person for each Division within IFLA. Each division includes a number of
Sections as well, as indicated on the scheme of the divisional structure of IFLA. Questions connected with organizing sessions in Israel within each division may be sent to these persons.
