German National Library of Economics (ZBW) International Conference on Economic and Business Information

Presentations from the International Conference on Economic and Business Information INCONECSS, which took place in Berlin on 19-20 April, are now available online. The event – organised by ZBW – was attended by librarians, information specialists, data professionals and publishers. Thorsten Meyer, Chief Librarian of the ZBW and chair of the conference, summarised the event: “Participants from Singapore to Finland agreed that the management of different stakeholders must assume greater importance in libraries, down to staff level. The needs, work methods and daily routines of researchers and students in economics must not only be known, but must provide the central starting point from which libraries offer their services.”
