The Degree in Sciences and Technologies of Documentation and Information (CTDI) and, in the scope of the Centre of Organizational and Social Studies at Porto Polytechnic (CEOS.PP), from Instituto Superior de Contabilidade e Administração do Porto (ISCAP) promotes, in the 16th of December 2022, its XVI Meeting under the theme "Accessibility and security for the success of organizations", via zoom.

Information professionals have long defended access to information. Examples of this are the "Code of Ethics" of the International Council on Archives of 1999, the "Code of Ethics" published by APBAD in 1999 and the "IFLA Code of Ethics for Librarians and other information professionals" updated by IFLA in 2012 which include this principle, already present in such basic documents as the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights in its Article 19. Today's information services are intrinsically related to access to content, connectivity and training/education. Nevertheless, ease of access must be accompanied by accessibility, understood as a blend of ethical and design considerations that ensure universal use of resources.

At the same time, information services should guarantee the security of the data they collect. In fact, information security is also a central element in the work of information professionals and involves respect for the principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability. Information professionals, in the course of their professional activity, adopt an attitude of mediation and promotion of access to information, respecting the spirit of the law regarding the confidentiality of sensitive or personal data. However, in the current context, increased difficulties regarding security in digital environments are emerging and the information services, as suppliers and mediators of information services and products, should promote equal access to all its potential users and simultaneously ensure the security of the information they safeguard.

This XVI CTDI Meeting intends to be, like previous events, a forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion among academics, professionals and students, raising awareness of the importance of adopting good practices on accessibility and security, which surely contributes to organisational success.

The event will take place via zoom, and intends to provide a space for sharing and dissemination of research developed in this thematic area, so I request registration for this meeting and are also invited to submit papers/poster, please see the respective dates on the site.


It will be an honour to count with your collaboration.
