About This Two-Part Webinar
Particularly in the humanities where the scholarly monograph is of critical importance, where and how books may be accessed by scholars is a sensitive issue. How should libraries be communicating with their communities about issues of access, convenience and responsiveness when it comes to the printed volumes that may take up so many valuable square feet of the library’s physical plant? Automation and offsite storage represent a wonderful benefit to institutions, but do researchers feel their needs have been slighted? How best to engage with the community on sensitive issues of preservation and best practice?
Part 1 of this Webinar, Finding The Space: Redesign and Re-Allocation, will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.
Part 2 of this Webinar, Discovery & Delivery at the Scholar’s Point of Need, will be held on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.
DATE: Thursday March 5th – Friday March 6st 2020
LOCATION: Oslo Metropolitan University, Oslo, Norway
Call for Papers and Participation
THEME: Connecting and Empowering Library Publishers: An International Knowledge Exchange
Library publishing (including new-model university presses housed in libraries) is a growing activity in many countries around the world. The IFLA SIG aims to bring together experienced practitioners and would-be publishers to build communities of practice, to share information, and advance this exciting field of endeavor. New and emerging library publishers will gain insight into the experiences and practices of established presses, and all attendees will learn from new and innovative approaches. All the presentations and the ensuing discussions will advance the excellence and sustainability of library publishing ventures
The aim of the event is to bring together a broad spectrum of publishing programs, to exchange knowledge, present good practice, and to foster networks and mentoring relationships among library publishers at all stages, also highlighting the important role that the Library Publishing Coalition and the IFLA SIG play in this regard.
The SIG meeting also invites participation by library schools and others engaged in efforts to educate the next generation of library publishers.
