Call for Papers - Open Sessions
Acquisition and Collection Development

·         8 January 2020, 09:11

Theme: "Collection development in the era of open access: impacts of open 
access business models and open access resources on library collection 

The Acquisition and Collection Development 
Section<https://www.ifla.org/acquisition-collection-development> invites 
proposals for paper presentations at the IFLA World Library and Information 
Congress, Dublin, Ireland, August 15-21 2020.
As more and more resources are available open access (OA), libraries face new 
challenges and opportunities. One of these challenges is about defining open 
access. We would like to start from a holistic understanding including main 
"colours" - green, gold and platinum. Other challenges are about making open 
access material a part of the collection development workflow. In many parts of 
the world, the open access publishing market is changing very quickly, with 
many different types of OA publishing models and infrastructure. We will seek 
to understand and get overview of different business models and their long term 
impact on library budget and workflows.
We will explore the impact of OA on collection development in libraries through 
a two-hour open session. We invite submissions related to OA, and particularly 
welcome case studies from institutions or recent consortia that have 
experienced one of the following topics.
Possible topics may include:
·        Integration of OA resources into the workflows of collection 
·        Challenges with regard to selection, retrieval, visibility, support, 
evaluation, long-term preservation etc. of OA resources
·        Specific examples of best practices regarding the handling of new OA 
offerings and agreements
·        Case studies on good collaboration within consortia or between 
publishers and libraries
·        New skills about handling OA resources generally and new and emerging 
business models and funding structures and sources specifically
·        Open access collection building as a global challenge
