You can find our first roundup with papers from IFLA 2011 here.
This is only a small (very small) hand-selected list of what has been or will be presented at IFLA 2011 (World Library and Information Congress : 77th IFLA General Conference and Assembly) in San Juan.
We focused on papers that we believe will be of greatest interest to our readers without listing every item. We were also on the lookout for papers by people and organizations we’ve mentioned on ResourceShelf in the past.
Expect a third roundup later this week. We hope you find our selections both interesting and useful.
All Papers are PDF Files.
