Satellite Meeting on Global and Comparative Research Design in LIS

This event has been long in the planning. It was delayed by the Covid19 pandemic, but I’m happy to share that the planned satellite meeting will be held immediately after the upcoming IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) at the end of July.

IFLA’s Library Theory and Research Section (LTR), together with the Social Science Libraries Section (SSL) in cooperation with IFLA Journal, is organizing a Satellite Meeting on Global and Comparative Research Design in Library and Information Sciences. It will take place at Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland on 30 and 31 July from 09:00 to 15:00.

The meeting will take the form of an interactive workshop, with presentations by experienced researchers in international and comparative research. I have been asked to do a keynote presentation.

Registration for on-site and virtual attendance is open until 15 July.

Further details and a registration link can be found on the IFLA website at
