Due to the complexity of requirements caused by the changing environment it is no longer possible for information specialists to act without being continuously abreast of new methods and techniques and without exchanging own visions and ideas with colleagues in other fields and disciplines interested in this topic. Thus, intention is to address the changing and challenging environment for libraries and information systems and services in the digital age, with an emphasis on examining contemporary problems, advances and solutions.
