On February 11th, 2020, the 14th annual student-run Information Without Borders Conference (IWB) will be held in the McInnes Room at Dalhousie University’s Student Union Building. The topic for the 2019 conference is: Information at Home. Halifax is a unique community with a diverse population with different experiences and different needs. The conference will explore the information needs of Halifax and how different individuals and organizations help serve the information needs of the Halifax community. As we explore some of these information needs, the conference will provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary and inter-organizational discussion on this topic for a variety of professional and student attendees.
Registration is now open! Student registration will be $25, or $105 for professionals & community members. Registration includes access to all events, breakfast, lunch and a gift bag.

We are also running two competitions that feature student research: the first is a poster competition, the second is a paper competition for the student speaker session. We encourage all university students who are researching relevant topics to apply. Please see our website for details.
We hope that this year’s conference topic will be of interest to you! Please share this information with your department.
