Ifla satellite meeting in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy, August 19-21, 2009
13.07.2009 Registration is now open for the Satellite Conference on Serials Preservation, organized by the IFLA Section on Serials and Other Continuing Resources. Onsite hosting and generous local support is provided by the University of Bolzano Library.
The title of the Conference is: PRESERVING THE CULTURAL LEGACY OF SERIALS FROM CONSERVATION (PRINT AND MANUSCRIPT) TO REFORMATTING (MANY FORMATS) TO DIGITAL (BYTES).
Most of the proceedings will be in English. This is a program of interest not only to serials and preservation librarians, but also to historians, digital specialists, and others involved in the practice of current librarianship - and our colleague publishers and vendors, of course.
The Satellite meeting will begin with a reception in the early evening of Wednesday, 19 August. The programme will proceed all day Thursday, August 20th, and University of Bolzano Library is providing a special treat that evening in an historic mountain castle, a dinner that promises to be an outstanding event. Then, for anyone wishing to attend the World Library and Information Congress: 75th IFLA General Conference and Assembly in Milan, the Bolzano Library has arranged for all registrants to be transported by coach to Milan, once the Satellite conference ends at noon on Friday, August 21st.
