The 2022 DLIS 4th Biennial

University of Botswana

April 25, 2022 – April 27, 2022

You are cordially invited  to the 4th Biennial DLIS Conference to be held virtually from 25-27 April, 2022 in Gaborone. The theme of the conference is “Information and Knowledge Management in the 4th Industrial Revolution and COVID-19 Era”.

Due to rapid advancement of technologies, management of information and knowledge resources is central in the stride towards knowledge-based economies. There is a paradigm shift in information generation, storage, accessibility and use. Traditional libraries, Records and Archive Management Centres among others are being replaced by pervasive libraries and information systems, where information can be accessed and utilized anywhere and anytime. Knowledge has been at the heart of economic growth in the developed economies. Knowledge management is also tied with Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) transformation. Technological advancement and the application of digital tools to transform organizational operations has steadily increased with the advent of 4IR.

In the middle of the clamour for the 4IR, Corona Virus pandemic, otherwise known as COVID 19 struck and caused a devastating effect in organisations and the lives of people world-wide. In this time of disruption, the technologies driving the 4IR offered some respite to continue a semblance of normality in economy and business, education, training and life as organizations started operating from remote locations, rather than on site. These developments enable information and knowledge to find relevance not only in times of emergency as observed during Covid-19, but also in the fourth industrial revolution.
