Call for Papers
IFLA Acquisition and Collection Development Section
Division of Collections and Services
74th World Library and Information Congress, Quebec City, Canada, 10-14
*Session Theme: "In and Out (of Copyright): Contrasting Perspectives on
Digitization of Library Collections"
The IFLA Acquisition and Collection Development Section invites
librarians and other interested parties to submit proposals for papers
for the Section's two hour Open Programme during the Quebec Congress.
A broad range of initiatives are underway in the library and information
community focusing on digitization of print collections, including
materials both in and out of copyright. We invite papers that present
contrasting views, from participating libraries or organizations, of
these various digitization efforts. We are interested in learning about
the opportunities that are presented and the challenges that have arisen
in participating libraries and organizations.
Please send a detailed abstract (1 page or at least 300 words) of the
proposed paper (must not have been published elsewhere) and relevant
biographical information for the author(s)/presenter(s) _by 1 February
2008_ via email to:*
