XV RIBDA: Innovation in open access to agricultural information

In October (27-29), the XV RIBDA will be held in Lima, Peru. RIBDA is the Inter-American Meeting of Librarians, Documentalists and Specialists on Agricultural Information.

The goals of XV RIBDA are:
  1. To debate the technological innovations currently in the area of Open Access (OA) including their implications for improved transmission of knowledge, exchange of experiences, and agricultural and natural resources usage and planning.
  2. To present to the American community the advances of the OA movement for the free transference and diffusion of knowledge in agricultural and related areas.
  3. To propose actions, applicable to the conditions and realities of the countries of AIBDA members, that will benefit professional practices and Latin American society.
The conference is open to researchers, academics, information brokers and specialists in agricultural and environmental information. It will be of interest to computer scientists, librarians, documentalists, archivists, economists, agricultural engineers, environmental planners, professional associations of information and college students, among others.
