*SAVE THE DATE: “Libraries as Publishers: Building a Global Community”*
*August 10-12, 2016*
Please save the date for “Libraries as Publishers: Building a Global
Community,” an IFLA satellite conference to be held at the University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, on August 10 - 12, 2016, prior to the IFLA World
Library & Information Congress in Columbus, Ohio
This event is sponsored by the IFLA Section on Acquisition and
Collection Development, and co-sponsored by the IFLA Section on Serials
and Other Continuing Resources. Collaborators include the Library
Publishing Coalition, and the host is the University of Michigan
Library, a leader in the library publishing community.
A new role that libraries are playing with increasing success is in the
dissemination of original scholarly and literary materials. Both public
and academic libraries are becoming publishers for their communities.
Over the last few years, the number of libraries with a commitment to
publishing has grown substantially, with both academic and public
libraries finding a strong demand for their services. The latestLibrary
more than 115 libraries with active publishing programs, most in North
America but an increasing number in other continents. A global
community of library publishers is forming, and this meeting provides
the ideal opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world to
identify common themes, brainstorm about shared challenges, and identify
future opportunities for information exchange and collaboration.
The program will comprise three half-day sessions titled “Understanding
the Vision,” “Implementing the Vision,” and “Sustaining and Growing the
Vision.” We envision programming in a variety of formats, including
short case studies.
The program will start at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, August 10, with a
welcome reception and dinner and will end at 2 pm on Friday, August 12,
with a closing lunch. Plenty of opportunities for discussion and
networking will be provided.
Ann Arbor is a 3.5 hours drive from Columbus and only 30 minutes away
from Detroit International Airport (DTW), which has many direct domestic
and international flights.
Further information and a Call for Proposals will be forthcoming in
