Topics 

Libraries the world over are facing the dual challenges of preserving the printed newspapers as part of the culture of countries, and responding to the changes that new technologies bring on to managing both printed and online (born digital) newspapers. Rapid advancements of digital technologies affect the various aspects relating to newspapers in libraries and archives such as acquisition, collection development, access, storage, preservation of newspapers and their contents, and interlibrary lending.

The purpose of this conference aims not only at the sharing of collective knowledge about how libraries can tackle these challenges but also to open up opportunities for libraries, librarians and associated industry players to interact with one another and work out suitable partnerships that will help to improve the provision of newspaper services at libraries.

At this dedicated arena for professionals in the industry, delegates will gain valuable insights, exchange ideas, explore opportunities and build new networks and strategic alliances.
