LIS Grand Challenges &  the Death of the User [R. David Lankes]

Abstract:

“Grand challenges are hard problems with solutions  that have societal level impacts. They are as much  rallying cry as research agenda, and are useful in  promoting innovation in the field and building strong  cross-disciplinary partnerships. What are the grand  challenges in library and information science? This  presentation will focus on efforts to define these  grand challenges and the implications for research  and education in the LIS field. Special emphasis will  be put on moving past concepts of users to true  participation and past information to knowledge.”
