Theme: Maximising collection development of electronic and print
media in the digital environment: Opportunities for collaboration,
strategic partnerships and patron initiated collecting models.

Conference Theme and Focus
Due to the evolution of new technologies, the proportion of digital
material within the libraries' collections has been steadily
increasing. As libraries across the world face financial pressure they
must look to maximise their existing print and electronic
collections in the digital environment. The evaluation of collection
building should be measured by, for example, return on investment and
the needs of various user communities. What are the benefits to
libraries in the knowledge society of integrating digital and print
collections and undertaking collaborative digitization projects?
How do hybrid collections meet local user needs? Are there tools to
optimize collection building, e.g. pay-per-view, patron-driven
acquisition, e-only policies, e-media usage and overlap statistical
reports? What will publisher's policies for licensing digital
material look like in the future? This conference will also have a
special focus on Latin America and the Caribbean to include joint
ventures for marketing online publications to local users or for
developing digital collections that balance the preservation of cultural
heritage and user needs.

- Redefining Collections: Integrating Electronic and Print media

   Caribbean : Marketing Online Resources
