Call for Papers: Development of systems for long-term storage and preservation 
of library collections IFLA 2010

Libraries are dealing with growing quantities of digital content that need to 
be processed, stored, preserved and delivered. Large-scale repository systems 
are needed to perform these services. These systems will offer libraries the 
capability of managing their collections and keep them accessible for the 

Digital preservation has moved from a research topic, delivering knowledge 
reports and prototypes, to becoming an integral part of library systems.
Well, at least to some extent. Even though some long-term archiving systems 
have been operational for years and others are being implemented, approaches 
towards architecture, interfaces, data modelling and workflow implementation 
have not reached the mature stage of common understanding and acceptance. At 
the same time, the number of available archiving systems that fulfil the 
libraries' requirements is growing, but still very limited.

ICADS and the IFLA IT Section are organising a session at the 76th World 
Library and Information Congress in Goteborg with the title: 'Development of 
systems for long-term storage and preservation of library collections'. The 
ICADS/IT session is intending to offer a platform for the sharing of 
information on current developments, architectural approaches and possible 
solutions to the challenges of long-term management of large scale, 
heterogeneous collections. 

This is a call for papers to address the above mentioned topics, i.e.:

- Practical implementation of mass digital preservation strategies;

- Examples of integration of large-scale trusted digital repository systems 
with collection management and related library services;

- Defining requirements and the process of procurement for new integrated 
digital archiving systems or core components of them;

- Migration to new repository systems infrastructures and its implication in 
the digital collection management;

- Examples of interoperability between DP-solutions;

- Examples of cooperation in ressource sharing in DP.

The deadline for submitting a detailed abstract (500 words) and full author 
details is 19 February 2010. Selection of papers is based on the abstract, and 
presenters will be notified by 12 March 2010 whether they have been successful. 
The full paper is due on 15 May 2010 and must be an original submission not 
published elsewhere. Papers should be up to 4000 words. 20 minutes will be 
allowed for a summary delivery of the paper in the Conference. The author(s) 
should indicate his/her personal full contact details and include a summary 
curriculum vitae with the paper. Also, a digital photograph would be useful.

All submissions should be sent to Mandy Stewart (mandy.stewart@xxxxx).
