Call for Papers

2017 IFLA International News Media Conference

Theme: Collecting, Preserving, and Transforming the News for Research and the Public

Dates: 27-28 April 2017
Location:   Landsbókasafn Íslands Háskólabókasafn (The National and University Library of Iceland)
Reykjavík, Iceland

Conference website:
URL will be posted on the IFLA News Media Section website (http://www.ifla.org/news-media) when available.

Organizers:
IFLA News Media Section (http://www.ifla.org/news-media)
IFLA Information Technology Section (http://www.ifla.org/it)
Theme & sub-themes
From printed newspapers to born-digital news, libraries and other cultural heritage institutions have a central role in ensuring future access to news content. This conference will examine issues and challenges in collecting and preserving the news and making it available to users. Do access and preservation have different prerequisites? In addition, the conference will explore how news media is used and transformed by researchers and the public. Can we recognize variable user needs? Do we offer the most suitable APIs?

Proposals should address the main theme and related topics, including but not limited to:


·         Users experiences with digital newspaper collections and their usability expectations

·         Case studies of patron services for digitized and born-digital news (e.g., management systems, reading devices, printout services, etc.)

·         How digitized news collections are being used in the digital humanities, by researchers, and by the public

·         The importance and possibilities of citizen science

·         Long-term sustainability planning for news collections and the role of institutional commitment in preservation and sustainability planning

·         How institutions make digital newspaper collections freely accessible

·         Rules, regulations, or legislation for mandatory deposit of news content, paper or otherwise

·         Legal deposit libraries offering access to in-copyright digitized newspapers

·         National Libraries co-operating with newspaper publishing houses in digitization, access, etc.

·         Data research that benefits preservation practice and planning

·         Changing collection building in a social media and online world

·         New methods for media monitoring

·         Harvesting and preservation of web-only news content

·         Issues around suppression of digitized/digital news content and take down orders

Other proposals relevant to the main conference theme will also be considered.
