The 2019 DLIS 3rd Biennial Conference

Monday 15, April 2019 at 8:00AM
to Wednesday 17, April 2019

You are cordially invited to the 3rd Biennial DLIS Conference to be held from 15-17 April, 2019 in Gaborone at the University of Botswana Conference Center. The theme of the conference is “Information and Knowledge Management: Towards the Attainment of Sustainable Development Goals and Knowledge Based Economy”.

Of late, Sustainable Development and Knowledge-Based Economy are two global priorities that are highly debated at each forum of development.  Knowledge-Based Economy is key to Sustainable Development. The knowledge-based economy refers to an economy in which growth is dependent on the quantity, quality, and accessibility of the information available, rather than the means of production. In the knowledge based society, sustainable development should be attained through creation, generation and application of new knowledge.

The 2019 Biennial DLIS conference aims at discussing the whole spectrum of records, information and knowledge management that will help individuals and organizations to be at a competitive edge in the global knowledge economy and be able to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This conference will be a platform and opportunity for researchers, industrial practitioners, academia, information scientists, librarians, archivists and innovators to share their experiences in diverse aspects of records, information and knowledge management including innovation knowledge solutions. The conference will further provide an excellent interdisciplinary forum to discuss the most recent approaches, concerns and practical challenges at all stages of the knowledge lifecycle.
