Currents of Change
The Future of Polar Information
There are many currents moving through the polar regions. Physical currents are changing the landscape. Cultural and linguistic currents are always changing, ebbing, flowing, adapting. PLC 2008 (Currents of Change: the Future of Polar Information) and the 2008 University of the Arctic Council Meeting (Currents of Change: Advancing Polar Information and Knowledge Transfer) ran simultaneously. For this meeting, the currents of the Colloquy and the UArctic meeting flowed together and sometimes took different channels. Some keynotes, social and cultural events were held together. The intent was that through this exchange, administrators of the Arctic post secondary institutions and polar librarians would come to know each other and that the flow of information within and among the two organizations would be strengthened. The PLC program was packed with the latest from the polar information community. There was a half-day dedicated to the International Polar Year and another panel on information needs within the University of the Arctic.
