Session 088: Collections and Books [A]cross Borders
All attendees of the 2017 IFLA World Congress are invited to attend an all-day, off-site session on Monday, 21 August at the Wroclaw University Library on the theme “Collections and Books [A]cross Borders.” This offsite session is available to 2017 WLIC conference participants at no extra charge. If you are planning to attend, please “pre-register” at the following link, so that the organizers can plan appropriately. The session is limited to 200 participants. Please register here: https://iflarbscs.konfeo.com/
This all-day session explores historical and current practices for managing and providing access to collections that have crossed borders using case studies from around the world. A closing panel will discuss a set of draft guidelines for libraries to consider when acquiring and managing “non-patrimonial” books and collections. Group discussion will be encouraged throughout the day. Please join in the discussion of this complex and thought-provoking topic.
The Wroclaw University Library is conveniently located adjacent to the city center and is serviced by many tram lines.
