Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) addresses the changing and challenging environment for libraries and information systems and services in the digital world. This year’s theme “Digital Library Curation and Collections” is divided into two parts. The first part covers research and development, and the second part addresses advances in applications and practice. LIDA is an international biennial conference that 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.

The LIDA conference is held at the University of Zadar (Croatia), as it has been since 2010. Prior to that, in the years 2000 to 2009, LIDA was held annually at Inter-University Centre, Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Guest of Honour
The conference’s Guest of Honour is Professor Tefko Saracevic, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University, USA! Please join us in celebrating his contributions to LIDA and to the Library and Information Science field!
