The conference was opened by Vladimir Karen, Managing Director of Albertina icome Praha, and his team. He informed the delegates that some individuals created a virtual student of librarianship who asked Czech librarians via email conferences to fill in a survey on the topic of „information hell“, „information purgatory“ and „information paradise“. There were 195 responses within just 7 days! In the second half of the opening address there was a panel discussion that included the Devil, the Purgatorist and the Angel as panelists.

Video recording of the Opening Address is available (in Czech language only, but there are English captions in the powerpoint) at
