New submission deadline: 15 April 2024


The 5th Conference on Library and Information Studies (CLIS 2024) aims to gather local and international communities of library and information professionals, practitioners, LIS educators, and students to venture, share, and unpack the less discussed topics in the field of library and information studies and eventually make the participants more confident in navigating these landscapes.


Libraries are dynamic organizations adapting to contemporary trends, technological advancements, and evolving user needs. This ensures their enduring relevance and service efficacy for a diverse and ever-changing clientele. However, amidst the developments, there are critically important yet less explored domains within the field of library and information studies that deserve greater attention. By venturing into these uncharted territories, libraries can not only ensure their survival but also flourish as vibrant community hubs, empowering patrons with knowledge, safeguarding cultural heritage, and nurturing lifelong learning - all within the ever-evolving landscape of our world. With this, the conference aims to touch on these uncharted fields and provide a deeper understanding of how to address these less familiar challenges.

The Conference will explore the following sub-themes:

1. Unbounded Knowledge
- Emerging technologies: Examining the impact of AI, blockchain, virtual reality, and other technologies on information landscapes.
- Data science and information exploration: Exploring new methods for information analysis, visualization, and knowledge discovery.
- Unconventional data sources: Investigating alternative sources of information, like citizen science, social media, and sensor networks.

2. Uncharted User Groups
- Underserved communities: Addressing the information needs of marginalized populations, such as refugees, people with disabilities, or rural communities.
- Specialized domains: Exploring the unique information needs of specific fields, like healthcare, environmental science, or indigenous knowledge systems.
- Future generations: Envisioning information services for future populations and their evolving needs.

3. Unconventional Library Services
- Innovation in information delivery: Exploring alternative models for information access, like mobile libraries, makerspaces, or community information hubs.
- The ethics of information: Addressing issues like data privacy, misinformation, and algorithmic bias in library services.
- Reimagining the library building: Designing library spaces that foster collaboration, creativity, and community engagement.
- User-centric services: Designing library services and spaces based on user needs and preferences.

4. Uncontested Landscapes
- Global and cultural challenges: Addressing challenges related to diversity, equality, and inclusivity in libraries; embracing global perspectives while maintaining the library’s core identity and appeal.
- Information literacy and lifelong learning: Challenges in digital literacy, supporting lifelong learning initiatives, and providing resources for continuous education.
- Memory, legacy, and conscience: Embracing archival literacy.
