National Libraries and Research Libraries in a time of change
Nordic Conference on Preservation and Access

Conference at The Royal Library Stockholm 5 - 6 October 1998, 
Arranged by The Royal Library Stockholm & The Royal Library Copenhagen 

Preservation and Access in Nordic Research Libraries:  
A Progress Report/State of the Union

The rapid development of information technology and shifting library use 
has compelled libraries with historical collections, be they national, 
research or university libraries, to reassess their policies as regards 
preservation and access.

The changes in the library world have been twofold. On the one hand, 
the physical environment and thus document access has undergone substantial 
development.  Not only have a number of leading libraries moved, 
or are on the threshold of moving, into new or refurbished premises, 
but information technology has altered the way in which materials 
can be accessed and preserved.  Secondly, more attention is being paid 
to the library's role as a safeguard of cultural heritage.  
Libraries are underlining their role as cultural institutions and 
attracting new user groups.

The organisers hope that this seminar will provide its participants 
the opportunity of acquainting themselves with some of the most recent 
developments in the library world and of assessing how these developments 
have and will affect library policy as regards preservation and access.
