Call for Papers 2015 IFLA Congress Open Session Preservation and Conservation Section

By Jeanne Drewes

Joint session of the Preservation and Conservation Section and the Information Technology Section

Theme: 10 years of development to collect, preserve and access Web-Sites: Ready to go for everyone!? 

The World Wide Web becomes more and more important as a source for cultural heritage testimonials, which have to be collected and preserved by national libraries and other legally mandated bodies. And increasingly this is not only an issue for large institutions but also for many smaller organizations with limited resources and very specific collection profiles. So the need to include Web-Sites in the collection of memory institutions is an increasing demand.

For this session we are looking for good examples of services and solutions demonstrating the use and benefits of the current tool family which enable libraries – especially smaller institutions - to initiate new services with a limited amount of effort.

Proposals for papers should be no more than one page in length. If selected, speakers will have 15-20 minutes to present their results and 5 minutes for a question and answer period during the conference session.

See the full call for papers on the IFLA WLIC 2015 website.
