Our 2019 Theme:
On February 12th, 2019, the 13th annual student-run Information Without Borders Conference will be held in the McInnes Room at Dalhousie University’s Student Union Building. The topic for the 2019 conference is: Information Accessibility. Information accessibility applies not only to governmental agencies and corporations, but to everyone. The conference will explore issues and concerns around who has access to information, how it is obtained, and how knowledge transfer could be facilitated. It will also provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary and inter-organizational discussion on this topic for a variety of professional and student attendees.
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 one-day event provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussion on a central topic affecting all professions represented at Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management. Our 2019 conference marks the 13th 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.
