2021 Theme: Information as Power

Information Without Borders’ 2021 theme is Information as Power, focusing on how information can be used as a means to empower minority groups and advocate for change. Information Without Borders is an annual conference for both students and professionals working and interested in the field of Information Management. The conference is run by students in Dalhousie University’s Master of Library and Information Studies program. Information Without Borders provides an opportunity for Information Management professionals, students, and academics to engage in interdisciplinary discussion and learning. The conference will take place virtually on February 8 and 9, 2021.

What is the Information Without Borders conference?

The Information Without Borders (IWB) Conference is a student-run initiative led by individuals in the Library and Information Studies program at the School of Information Management at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This event provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussion on a central topic affecting all professions represented in Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management. Our 2021 conference marks the 15th annual conference.

IWB was developed out of the desire to facilitate networking and communication between students, faculty and Information professions as well as develop a platform for in-depth discussion on pertinent issues and topics relevant to the field of Information Management. IWB aims to promote integration and communication between schools in the Faculty of Management and other departments at Dalhousie while providing an environment for students to develop their skills, present their research, and learn from others.
