Call for Papers: 2017 IFLA News Media Satellite Conference

Relying on News Media. Perspectives for Long Term Preservation and Our Collective Memory

Dates: 16-18 August 2017

Venue: Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB), Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

News media are agents in and witnesses of the rapid social and political change of our times. Libraries also play twofold roles: they store physical and electronic media for eternity and, on the other hand, in the field of digital or digitized media, they act as gatekeepers, curators and designers of user platforms and modes of access for fu-ture users. The conference will give attention to both aspects, archiving news media and making them usable.

Proposal abstracts must be submitted by 1 March 2017.
