*"Networks of Digital Collections and Digital Libraries and How They
Present New Opportunities for Local Collection Development and Management"*
The Acquisition and Collection Development Section
<http://www.ifla.org/acquisition-collection-development> is seeking
proposals for papers to be presented at the IFLA World Library and
Information Congress in Wrocław, Poland, from 19-25 August, 2017.
The program will focus on networks of digital collections and digital
libraries and on new collection development and management opportunities
that may emerge from these. Digital collections and digital libraries
extend the breadth of print collections, enlarge the scale of scholarly
and cultural evidence, and support innovative research and lifelong
learning. They allow us to create collaboratively a new digital service
environment, in which the library becomes responsible for configuring
access to a shared world of information. In this networked online
information space, users can discover, locate, access and, increasingly,
use information. The scaled-up digital library service environment
allows us to manage information about collections and items within
collections, often throughout their entire life cycle. It supports the
full range of administrative, business, and curatorial functions
required by the library to manage, administer, monitor engagement with,
and ensure fair use of its collections. Connected to larger
inter-institutional networks, digital collections and digital libraries
present new and important opportunities for collection development and
management on a regional, national and international level. It is a
perfect time for IFLA’s Acquisition and Collection Development Section
to conceptualize libraries’ cooperation on digital collections, to
demonstrate how digital collections and digital libraries are created,
and how they connect in a network environment regionally, nationally or
*We are kindly asking for appropriate submissions for presentations no
longer than 15 minutes each and shedding light on:*
* Case studies on the creation of Digital Libraries in a consortial
environment, with examples of their use.
* Examples of new venues for historical heritage collections built via
an inter-institutional aggregation of the distributed digital
content owned locally in print.
* Digital Collections and how they influence maintenance and or
preservation: Case studies on, for example:
o The impact of networks of digital collections upon
local/collaborative preservation or de-selection of print holdings.
o Selection and collection development criteria libraries may have
created in order to develop new digital collections of
retro-digitized materials and cultural heritage.
* Extending local collections:
o Examples of how libraries may have leveraged local print or
microform collections to link these to the full text available
and accessible in digitized networks.
o Illustrate how these networks can meet all users’ needs as, for
example, in any user requiring different text options due to
visual or learning issues
Cases studies (i.e. HathiTrust, Europeana, or other large digital
libraries) demonstrating how creating libraries at this large scale is
impacting the way individual library collections and services are
evolving, are particularly welcome.
