From 10-14 October 2005, the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers met in Rome, Italy. Entitled "Information for Responsible Fisheries: Libraries as Mediators", the meeting focused on the creation, use, and understanding of innovative information management techniques and technology, both existing and emerging, which facilitate easy and equitable access for target audiences. The Conference explored the role of libraries as mediators in providing access to the complexity of information required and the opportunities and challenges for securing access over the long term. Navigating the issues of Open Access and the intricacies of Open Archives requires new skills as well as stronger collaboration between libraries.
