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,
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).
