The biennial international conference Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) addresses the changing and challenging environment for libraries and information systems and services in the digital world. At each conference a different and ‘hot’ theme is addressed, divided in two parts; the first part covering research and development and the second part addressing advances in applications and practice. Digital Library Curation and Collections is the overriding theme this year for both parts. LIDA brings together researchers, educators, practitioners, and developers from all over the world in a forum for personal exchanges, discussions, and learning, made easier by being held in memorable environs.
From years 2000 to 2009 LIDA was held annually at Inter-University Centre, Dubrovnik, Croatia; after that LIDA moved as a biennial conference to University of Zadar (Croatia).
