It includes links to a substantial number of the papers – about seventy – that will be presented. My own contribution, on the digital learning project VOLARE in Drammen and Buskerud, will be part of Session 94:

The importance of information literacy for multicultural populations: needs, strategies, programs, and the role of libraries.

This session, with a total of eight papers, takes place on 15 August 2011 09:30 – 12:45 in Exhibition Hall A. Three of the papers are currently available: one from Turkey, one from Mexico and one from Norway.

The programme includes three more papers with authors from Norway:

  • Sustaining literacy through libraries. WILLIAM EVANS (The Norwegian Association for Adult Learning, Oslo, Norway), SANJANA SHRESTHA (READ Nepal, Kathmandu, Nepal) and BASU DHUNGANA (Nepal Community Library Association, Kathmandu, Nepal)
  • Norwegian libraries and special services for immigrant women. ARNE GUNDERSEN (National Library of Norway, Oslo, Norway)
  • UNIMARC and FRBR – can we have both?. TROND AALBERG (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway), JAN PISANSKI and MAJA ŽUMER (University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia)
