Department of Library and Information Science, Faculty of Humanities, Universitas Indonesia (hereinafter reffered to as the DIPI FIB UI) is one of the oldest higher education institution that provides Education program in the field of Library, Information, and Archives Science in Indonesia, since 1952. Until now, Department of Library and Information Science FIB UI has initiated many innovations and novelty studies that are produced by Professors and Lecturers of DIPI FIB UI. Each year of its anniversary, as a pioneer in the field of Library and Information Science, DIPI FIB UI always introduces and brings new ideas in the field. Those new ideas are brought through scientific events, such as international conferences and seminars. In prior years, DIPI FIB UI held Seminars, Discussion, Colloquium in the fields, such as: RDA, Social Media Mining, Library School, Sustainable Development Goals, etc. Library and information science is considered interdisciplinary in nature because it closely relates to other fields such as computer science, information systems, communications, management, documentation, archival science, library science, and social science as well. Library and Information science makes information as the core of the discussion that could be viewed from many different angles. To realize that, this year of 2018, in concordance of the 66th Anniversary of DIPI FIB UI, in collaboration with UiTM Mara and Chulalongkorn University, we proudly present The 2nd International Conference on Library, Archives, and Information Sciences 2018 (ICOLAIS 2018)). ICOLAIS 2018 invites scientists from various fields related to library and information science. This is to accomplish in the development of library and information science. The theme coined in this international conference is “The Power of Information in Shaping Society,” that will act as a medium to discuss multidisciplinary topics in the field of library and information science. Through this theme, it is hoped that we can involve many professionals that have indirect roles in the related field of library and information science, such as architecture, information systems, computer science, data analytics, etc. Besides, this anniversary event is also an event for homecoming for the alumni to contribute to the development of the DIPI FIB UI, which could strengthen the bond and network between department and its alumni and related parties.
