I take this opportunity to welcome you all to this 6th Biennial ProLISSA Conference, an event that was initiated by the DISSAnet Project. DISSAnet is an acronym that stands for Development of Information Science in South Africa. The project was initiated in 1997 by Professors Irene Wormell and Peter Ingwersen from the Royal School of Library and Information Science in Copenhagen, Denmark. The aim was to create a nation-wide platform to support the advancement of LIS research in South Africa in order to also meet the demands of a new country. ProLISSA has grown from the initial mandate of South Africa only to include southern Africa, and now colleagues from East Africa have joined us.
