Call for Papers: 2017 IFLA International News Media Conference, Reykjavík, Iceland

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

Date: 27-28 April 2017

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

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. Late proposal? Please ask a program committee member.
