CFP: 2018 IFLA International News Media Conference

2018 IFLA International News Media Conference
“When Risk becomes Real, Preserving News becomes Critical”
Organized by the IFLA News Media Section (http://www.ifla.org/news-media)
Dates
18-20 April 2018
Location:
George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, USA
Conference website:
URL will be posted on the IFLA News Media Section website when available
Theme & sub-themes:
As the world has seen increasing disasters that threaten entire communities, preservation of the identity of those communities as revealed through their newspapers becomes imperative. From earthquakes in Mexico to hurricanes and fires in the United States, to problems of publisher inability to manage large news archives, libraries can step in to assist communities with preservation solutions. Libraries can also save community and special-interest newspapers whose content has historically been underrepresented in mainstream circles. As news collections age, preservation solutions are increasingly pressing. Digital preservation, with infrastructure spread across multiple locations, offers many possibilities to assist communities under threat of natural disaster or to assist publishers in need of collection management solutions and to prevent loss of collection in the event of disasters.
This year, the International News Media Conference seeks proposals related to how digital preservation of news can help or has helped at-risk communities. Proposals should address the main theme and related topics, including but not limited to:
● Models of E-Deposit to Assist Publishers in Preservation
● Collecting Strategies and Legal Deposit
● Preservation/Legal Advocacy Efforts on a Local Level
● Role of Library as a News Preservation Leader
● News Preservation Practices
● Digital Preservation Infrastructure
● Relationships with Publishers
● Collecting Strategies in Local and Regional Libraries
● Disaster Preparedness in Digital News Collection Preservation
● Disaster Management Case Studies in News Preservation
● Preservation of Underrepresented Community and Special-Interest News Media
Other proposals relevant to the main conference theme will also be considered.
