What is LIS?


The National Graduate School of Information Sciences and Libraries (�cole nationale sup�rieure des sciences de l?information et des biblioth�ques–ENSSIB) located in Lyon, France is planning to create a new scholarly journal in its areas of expertise.

Each number of this new journal will include a thematic section.  For the first issue the theme will be an investigation of the question: ?What is library and information science??

 In the English speaking world the term ?library and information science? is widely used in titles of publications and as the name of an academic discipline; in addition LIS  serves to designate schools and departments as well as diplomas, and specialized library collections.

 In Europe, and especially in France, the domain of LIS is less well defined.  Twenty years ago, in 1992, the phrase ?information sciences? was added to the name of  the National Graduate Library School of France (l?Ecole nationale sup�rieure des biblioth�ques ?ENSB) when it was transformed into an institution of higher education that integrated research with professional training.  Thus the term ?Information sciences and libraries? came into being.  But what exactly does that phrase cover?  Does it include all the specializations covered at l?ENSSIB: information science and communication on the one hand, and historical study on the other?   Is it understood in Europe as being solely a field of professional training for future librarians, or has it also become a field for scholarly research?

For the first number of the ENSSIB journal we are seeking proposals that attempt to define and document the history of library and information science**.  Authors should submit their proposals of no more than 1,000 words by January 15th.    Authors whose proposals are accepted should plan to submit their completed manuscripts by June 1, 2012.

The editor will be Rapha�le Mouren who serves as a professor (Ma�tre de conf�rences) at the
University de Lyon-ENSSIB.     Submissions can be in English or French and may concern how LIS has been defined in any country or geographic area.

Race, Gender, Class, Sexuality Symposium:

“Critiquing Culture, Working for Change”

Friday, February 24, 2012

Wright State University

Dayton, Ohio

Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to propose
papers, panels, workshops, and performances as part of a day-long series
of conversations about intersectional knowledge production and community

Continuity in the face of digital disasters: Disaster planning and recovery for digital libraries

Call for papers


“Libraries Now! – Inspiring, Surprising, Empowering””

11-17 August 2012, Helsinki, Finland


Information Technology Section

Theme: Continuity in the face of digital disasters: Disaster planning and recovery for digital libraries


While much emphasis has been placed by libraries on developing digital collections and services, there have been few studies of how to keep these digital collections and services functioning in the case of a disaster or some other disruption to normal library operations. Whether due to natural or man-made events, advance planning for disruptions to services and collections is critical in our increasingly digital age.


In response to this critical need, the Information Technology section is seeking proposals for papers on best practices and tools that relate to the facilitation, implementation, or planning for disaster recovery and business continuity of digital libraries.


Areas of interest for papers include, but need not be restricted to, the following:

         Developing effective disaster recovery and organizational continuity models

         Implementing effective disaster recovery and continuity strategies for digital repositories

         Minimizing risk in developing and implementing digital libraries

         Solutions for promoting collaborative services to enable digital library continuity

         New organizational models to support an emphasis on library organizational continuity

         Case studies and lessons learned from successful efforts in recovering from a disaster


Proposals for papers should be no more than one page in length. If selected, speakers will have 15 minutes to present their results and 5 minutes for a question and answer period during the conference session.


Proposals should include the following information:


      Name, title, and institution of speaker(s)

      Title of proposed presentation

      Address and email address of speaker(s)

      Brief biographical statement about each speaker including information about the qualifications of the speaker to address the proposed topic

      One or two paragraph discussion of the main points of the paper including an outline of the takeaways a conference attendee will obtain by having the topic presented at the conference 

      Language of presentation

      Contact information for response to the proposal


Proposals should be sent by 11 February, 2012 to Frank Cervone, secretary of the Information Technology Section at The subject line of all submissions should be “IFLA ITS Proposal -” followed by your last name. For example, “IFLA ITS Proposal – Cervone”


The contact person for each proposal will be informed by 10 March, 2012 whether their proposal has been accepted or not. Papers selected for inclusion in the program must be submitted in one the official languages of IFLA by 15 May, 2012.


Please note:

      The committee is looking for papers that present real-world solutions. Papers that focus on solutions that are usable in multiple library contexts will receive higher consideration for inclusion in the conference program. Papers that are strictly theoretical or inapplicable to other environmental contexts are less likely to be accepted for inclusion in the program.

      Every paper accepted must be presented in person by one of the authors at the WLIC in Helsinki.

      Authors are required to permit non-exclusive publication of papers chosen for this session on the IFLA website and digital library. Papers that are accepted but not presented in person at the conference will not be made available on the official conference website nor will they be considered for nomination as a best paper of the conference.

      Authors of papers not chosen for the conference may be invited to submit their paper for publication in the IFLA IT section journal.

      All speaker expenses, including registration for the conference, travel, accommodation, etc., are the responsibility of the authors/presenters. No financial support can be provided by IFLA.

      A special invitation can be issued to authors/presenters to facilitate attendance if required.

WE ARE NOT JUST THE 99%: Queering the Occupy Movement, Reimagining Resistance

Edited by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore


Ignited by the Arab Spring, uprisings in Greece and Spain, and protests in Wisconsin, Occupy Wall Street has brought corporate greed and structural inequality into the spotlight while claiming public space and refusing hierarchical models of resistance. “We are the 99%,” the central slogan of the Occupy movement, has been crucial in rallying mass support. And yet, this slogan invokes a vision of sameness that stands in stark contrast to a queer analysis that foregrounds, cultivates, and nurtures difference. From Mortville, the queer camp at Occupy Baltimore, to the Feminists and Queers Against Capitalism bloc at the Oakland general strike, queers are playing central roles in Occupy spaces. But, what would it mean to bring a queer analysis to the forefront, going beyond the politics of inclusion to question the very terms of the debate?

For the first time in decades, perhaps there’s a possibility for a mass movement demanding radical social change in the US. Still, most Occupy spaces remain straight, white, and male-dominated: how do we prevent the power imbalances intrinsic to previous movements? What about accountability within the 99%? How have Occupy spaces addressed (and failed to address) homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, racism, ableism, imperialism/patriotism, police brutality, anti-homeless territorialism, sexual assault, and other issues of structural, personal, and intimate violence? As struggles emerge to confront the colonial rhetoric of “occupying” indigenous land (and to address this history), what can a queer analysis bring to this challenge? What do queer struggles have to learn from Occupy/Decolonize movements, and what can Occupy/Decolonize movements learn from queer struggles?

I’m interested in missives from queers involved in Occupy/Decolonize movements, as well as from those veering between skeptical and inspired. I would love to hear about queer challenges within Occupy encampments large and small, across the country and around the world. Bring me your explosive analysis, your rants, your manifestoes, your journal entries, your rage and rigor and hope and heartbreak. In addition to written nonfiction work, I’m also interested in art, photography, posters, flyers, and other forms of visual documentation queering the Occupy movement – its goals and aspirations, its impact, its perils and possibilities.

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore is the editor of five nonfiction anthologies, most recently Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?: Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification, and the Desire to Conform (AK Press 2012), and the author of two novels, most recently So Many Ways to Sleep Badly (City Lights 2008). More info on Mattilda at

Please send essays or written materials of up to 5000 words, as Word or text file attachments only, to Include a brief bio. Please send a query before submitting visual work. The deadline is March 20, 2012, although the earlier the better. Any questions, send them my way!

March 10-12, 2012 – Berlin, Germany

* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
Prof. Dr. Egon Berghout, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

* Conference background and goals
A new paradigm is sweeping the society, organisations and the business
environment.  In fact, society and business world alike are moving from
its tangible bases to
intangible ones based on knowledge and information systems (IS) to support
its management, use and sharing.  In this emerging paradigm, terms like
communication, knowledge, and learning have acquired a critical relevance
to the understanding of the nature of contemporary business.  This led
authors such as
Drucker (1993) to state that “we are entering the knowledge society in
which the basic economic resource… is knowledge”.
In fact, since the mid-1980s, there has been a sudden avalanche of a new
kind of vocabulary. Corporations, which so far had been economic entities,
are being described
as ‘information-based organizations’, ‘learning organizations’,
‘knowledge-creating companies’ or knowledge intensive organisations.
Instead of product-market
strategies, the fashionable business discourse invokes core competencies,
intangible assets, knowledge-based capabilities, intellectual capital,
knowledge management
etc.  Consequently, in this 21st century of ours, terms such as
intellectual capital, knowledge management, and knowledge mapping have
increasingly become part of the
corporate landscape.
However, none of this apparent revolution would be possible without the
underlying technological support provided by IS. The IADIS Information
Systems Conference
(IS 2012) aims to provide a forum for the discussion of IS taking a
socio-technological perspective.  It aims to address the issues related to
design, development and
use of IS in organisations from a socio-technological perspective, as well
as to discuss IS professional practice, research and teaching.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise invited talks and oral presentations. The
proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book. The
best paper authors
will be invited to publish extended versions of their papers in specific
journals, and in the IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and
Information Systems.
The conference proceedings will be submitted for indexing to INSPEC, EI
Compendex, Thomson ISI, ISTP and other indexing services.

* Types of submissions
Full and Short Papers, Reflection Papers, Posters/Demonstrations,
Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium. All submissions are subject to
a blind refereeing process.

* A set of key issues has been identified (see below). However, these do
not aim at being prescriptive, or set in stone, and any innovative

fit into these areas will also be considered. Areas and Topics of the
