2017 IFLA International News Media Conference

Collecting, Preserving, and Transforming the News – for Research and the Public

When

27 – 28 April 2017

Where

Landsbókasafn Íslands – Háskólabókasafn (The National and University Library of Iceland), Reykjavík, Iceland

IFLA will be represented by Governing Board member Frederick Zarndt

Description

From printed newspapers to born-digital news, libraries and other cultural heritage institutions have a central role in ensuring future access to news content. This conference will examine issues and challenges in collecting and preserving the news and making it available to users. Do access and preservation have different prerequisites? In addition, the conference will explore how news media is used and transformed by researchers and the public. Can we recognize variable user needs? Do we offer the most suitable APIs? 

Proposal abstracts must be submitted by 27 January 2017.

Papers from this conference will be considered for a special issue of IFLA Journal.  All authors will be invited to use feedback from the conference to revise their work and submit it for peer review in collaboration with the IFLA Journal editorial committee and the conference organizing committee.
