The 21st BOBCATSSS Conference, will take place in Ankara, Turkey, from 23-25 January 2013.
BOBCATSSS is an annual conference series that is traditionally organised by students from European universities. At its 21st anniversary in January 2013, BOBCATSSS is organised by students from two universities, namely Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University (TUR) and The Royal School of Library and Information Science (DEN).
"From Collections to Connections: Turning Libraries 'Inside-out'" being the main theme, BOBCATSSS 2013 aims to bring together students, professors and specialists in the field of library and information science. Today, the world of libraries and librarians, more than ever, set for change. The focus is shifting towards creating connections between people and online resources, rather than static collections focused on the physical book. Part of information specialists is to facilitate and help the users navigate through this jungle, and in due course find our own place in this ever changing world. In the light of these challanges BOBCATSSS 2013 will be a meeting place between the professionals of tomorrow and researchers and teachers of today.
