Inter-University Centre, Dubrovnik, Croatia, 19 - 22 April 2021

Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) addresses the changing and challenging environment for libraries and information systems and services in the digital world. LIDA is an international biennial conference that brings together researchers, educators, students, practitioners, and developers from all over the world in a forum for personal exchanges, discussions, and learning, made easier by being held in memorable environs. This year’s theme is " Reshaping Identity in The Digital Age: People, Libraries, Data, Technology & Ethics". We welcome papers that address critical and theoretical examination of the theme; present current research and evidence, as well as examination of best practices from the field, and practitioner perspectives and applications.

We are deeply saddened to report that our dear friend and LIDA co-director, Ross J. Todd, passed away. Ross was a distinguished scholar and a wondeful person. He made an immense contribution to the international LIDA course and conference. We will miss him tremendously.
