Theme: "Evolving Serials - Managing, discovering and supplying highly innovative and dynamic content"
IFLA WLIC 2012, August 11-17, 2012, Helsinki, Finland
The Serials and Other Continuing Resources Section (SOCRS) invites colleagues to submit proposals for its two-hour open session at the IFLA Congress in Helsinki on the theme of Evolving Serials.
Gone are the days of modest electronic journals! Serials are evolving quickly and now contain linked data, visualizations, actionable QR codes, streaming media and other multimedia assets. They are delivered to end users via traditional digital platforms, and also via apps and mobile devices. Are libraries ready? How are serials librarians embracing these new technologies?
We invite papers that address the following issues:
• New developments in serials publishing
• Innovative delivery and discovery tools for the user
• Storage and preservation challenges and solutions for new serials types
• Case studies on challenges that librarians face with these changes
• Initiatives and projects on library linked data
• Adoption of mobile technology for serials access
• Measuring and assessing dynamic content
Proposals must include the following information:
1. Name and institution of speaker(s)
2. Contact information for speaker(s)
3. Brief biographical information
4. Proposal title
5. Brief (250 word) abstract of the proposed paper
6. Language of presentation
Proposals should be sent by email to Helen Heinrich, Secretary of the SOCR Standing Committee helen.heinrich at csun.edu by February 15, 2012
Finalists will be notified by March 7, 2012, and will be expected to submit final versions of their papers in one of the official IFLA languages by May 15, 2012.
For more information, please contact Helen Heinrich, Secretary of Serials and other Continuing Resources Section (helen.heinrich at csun.edu ) or Helen Adey, Chair of the Committee (helen.adey at ntu.ac.uk).
All expenses, including registration for the conference, travel, accommodation etc., are the responsibility of the authors/presenters. No financial support can be provided by IFLA, but a special invitation can be issued to authors.
Proposals will be reviewed by a sub-committee of members of the Serials and Other Continuing Resources Section (SOCRS). At least one author will be expected to attend conference to deliver paper.
