Dear colleagues,

Are your proud of the work you have been doing ? Do you think you know stuff you should share ? Do you have a great idea ? Are you able to teach your colleagues something ? Make yourself heard by doing a presentation at Elag 2017 !

The theme that was chosen for this year conference is ‘Automation’. Over the last years, library automation was very focused on data treatment and end user interfaces. These are still very important fields of interest and we welcome workshop proposals and interesting presentation proposals in these fields. But this year we would like to focus a bit more on library workflows. More focus on library back office activities. Especially for back office actvities that support a modern library. So this can go from using ‘intelligent’ devices in libraries to processing and using user activity logs in library back office processes. I hope you are just excited about this theme as we are.

We hope this quite general theme will inspire you to present your thoughts and work.

For more inspiration, see the sub-themes page:
