Speakers

W. BOYD RAYWARD, keynote speaker, was educated in Australia and the United States. He is currently emeritus professor in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science of the University of Illinois and in the School of Information Systems, Technology and Management of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. He has held professorial and deanship positions in the Graduate Library School of the University of Chicago and the University of New South Wales. He was editor of the Library Quarterly from 1975-1980. He is currently co-editor with Alistair Black of Library Trends. His research examines the history of the international organization of knowledge. In 1975 he published the first full length study of Paul Otlet, who originated the European documentation movement, was central to the creation and development of the Universal Decimal Classification and co-founded with Henri La Fontaine what became the International Federation for Documentation and Information. He published an English translation of a selection of papers by Otlet in 1990. Recent studies have focused on Paul Otlet's ideas in relation to hypertext and the beginnings of modern information science, on a number of utopian schemes of knowledge organization including H.G.Wells's idea of a world brain, and, from an historical point of view, on the implications of digitisation and networking for libraries and museums. European Modernism and the Information Society, a book of contributed papers edited by him appeared in 2008 and Information Beyond Borders: International and Cultural Exchange in the Belle Epoque is in preparation for publication in 2013.
