The target groups of the event are library professionals - information professionals, methodologists, managers and founders of libraries, library students, researchers, representatives of other memory and fund institutions (archives, galleries and museums) from Slovakia and abroad. is the implementation of 20 thematic online lectures by experts in order to reflect the current state of librarianship in Slovakia and abroad, outline its development in the future and share experiences, innovations and ideas. The theme of the symposium will be "Libraries in Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Times: Re-start, Re-design". Papers will be broader, will cover other cultural institutions (museums, galleries), new technologies and their impacts, virtual competencies. The output of the symposium will be a peer-reviewed online collection freely available to the general professional public. A separate website will be created within the Infolib portal, where there will be information on the preparation and implementation of the event, and an online proceedings will be published on it. At the same time, a video will be created from the entire program, which will be available on YouTube on the SSKK channel.
The target groups of the event are librarians from all types of libraries, methodologists, managers and founders of libraries, librarians, researchers, representatives of other memory and fund institutions (archives, galleries and museums). The interest in participating in the symposium is also strong from neighboring countries, especially the Czech Republic, where libraries and librarians face similar problems as libraries in Slovakia and are interested in exchanging experiences within the Central European area. It is expected that more than 150 participants will take part in the event, with an impact on the entire Slovak library community. The invitation of experts from abroad will ensure interest in participating in the event and will help maintain the high credit of the event as an important international professional forum of library and information specialists, which we want to maintain. With the publication of a video of the program's lectures that will be available back, the potential impact is in the hundreds to thousands.
