  Call for Papers for Satellite Conference!

    Acquisition and Collection Development Section
    Serials and Other Continuing Resources Section

    Kuopio, Finland
    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

current employment information (maximum 150 words)
