Conference Theme and Focus

Digital material is becoming dominant in many libraries. Especially in universities engaged in research and teaching in Science, Technology and Medicine (STM) subjects need to concentrate on digital content provision. At the same time economic constrains force libraries to make savings where ever they can. Savings can be made in profiled collection policies and profiled acquisitions. The costs of library premises are also a target of institutional economic consideration. Premises to accommodate print collections are being reduced and if possible local storage facilities should be rejected. One viable solution to maintain availability to print collections is outsourcing.

The National Repository Library of Finland has hosted the International Conference of Print Repositories and Repository Libraries on three occasions. During these conferences the need for efficient management of less used research documents on a global level has been highlighted as an issue. This demands new logistical and policy innovations in order to guarantee as easy access to these documents. The rise of the digital dissemination and new technologies has given libraries new tools, but at the same time the global copyright legislation continues to set new challenges for the libraries.

This satellite conference continues to focus on issues connected with efficient print collection management and guaranteeing access to print not as a curious artefact but as a genuine vehicle to communication with the best archival prospect.
