Call for Papers for Satellite Conference!
Acquisition and Collection Development Section
Serials and Other Continuing Resources Section
9th to 10th August 2012
*Theme: Global policies, Imperatives and Solutions for the Efficient
Library Collection Management and Access to Less Used Documents*
**Conference Theme and Focus
Digital material is becoming dominant in many libraries. Especially in
universities engaged in research and teaching in STM subjects need to
concentrate on digital content provision. At the same time economic
constrains force libraries to make savings where ever they can. Savings
can be made in profiled collection policies and profiled acquisitions.
The costs of library premises are also a target of institutional
economic consideration. Premises to accommodate print collections are
being reduced and if possible local storage facilities should be
rejected. One viable solution to maintain availability to print
collections is outsourcing.
The National Repository Library of Finland has hosted the International
Conference of Print Repositories and Repository Libraries on three
occasions. During these conferences the need for efficient management of
less used research documents on a global level has been highlighted as
an issue. This demands new logistical and policy innovations in order to
guarantee as easy access to these documents. The rise of the digital
dissemination and new technologies has given libraries new tools, but at
the same time the global copyright legislation continues to set new
challenges for the libraries.
This satellite conference continues to focus on issues connected with
efficient print collection management and guaranteeing access to print
not as a curious artefact but as a genuine vehicle to communication with
the best archival prospect.
Proposals for papers may include, but are not limited to, the following:
. Experiences of keeping available less used print material
. The policy and economic issues as a precursor to action
. The promise of new technologies enabling easy and fast access:
digitisation on demand, patron initiated processes, delivery to end users
. Ensuring access to research resources with innovative solutions
. Economic downturn and the need for cost-effective collection and
access management: examples of externalisation of services
. The economics of the global division of labour in storage and
access collaboration in action
If you are interested in contributing a paper, please send the
following, in electronic format (preferably via e-mail):
. An abstract of 300-500 words in English including a title
. An outline of the paper
. Brief biographical information of the author(s)/presenter(s) with
current employment information (maximum 150 words)
. Contact details including mailing address, email address, telephone
and /or fax numbers
Submit your proposal to the address below by 15th January 2011:
The submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee of the
Standing Committees of the Acquisition and Collection Development
Section and the Serials and Other Continuing Resources Section. The
selection will be based on the abstracts and rated on how well they fit
the programme theme. Authors will be contacted by 1st March 2012.
For successful applicants the deadline for submission of full papers is
15th May 2012 to allow time for review. The conference language is English.
