Ifla-Konferenz in Bozen, 19.-21.08.2009



Bolzano, Italy, August 19-21, 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.

The Web site for this Satellite Conference is found at:

Once there, you will find a list of our exceptional speakers and their affiliations,

as well as a link to the registration form; also there is the list of hotels University of Bolzano Library has identified for us to choose

from.  Registrants will be responsible for registration fees (25 Euros), transport to Bolzano (train from Milano, for example), hotel and some meals.

If anyone needs a „letter of invitation“ to be able to register, please let us know.  There is also the possibility to fund registration for Library School students who wish to attend, though we cannot provide the accommodation.  Please let us know if you are a student interested in such a possibility.

We look forward to seeing many of you at this outstanding program. The program planning committee has included Standing Committee members:  Hildegard Schaeffler, Alicia Wise, and Simonetta Pasqualis.  Graziano Kratli, Yale University Library, has led the Web development work. Many thanks again to our Bolzano hosts for their excellent and enthusiastic work on all the on-ground planning and logistics.  They are most generous with their time and resources. Great appreciation to all.

The exact schedule is currently being developed and will be added to the Web site at a later time.  Please join us in beautiful Bolzano, on your way to Milano!
