Registration has now opened for Open Access: Action Required, the IFLA satellite conference sponsored by the IFLA Section on Serials and Other Continuing Resources, and co-sponsored by the IFLA Section on Acquisition and Collection Development and the European Solidarity Center. Hosted by the Joseph Conrad Voivodship and City Public Library in Gdańsk, it is being held at the European Solidarity Center in Gdańsk, Poland, August 16-17, 2017, prior to the IFLA World Library & Information Congress in Wrocław, Poland.
The program consists of three sessions – “Long-term preservation of Open Access Resources,” “Marketing of Open Access Resources,” and “Discovery and Access of Open Access Resources” – each of which will provide insight and thought-provoking experiences with the may facets of working and dealing with Open Access resources, from speakers from all over the globe.
The program will start at 12 noon on Wednesday, August 16 and will end at 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 17. If you are planning on attending this year’s World Library & Information Congress or if you are simply interested in how Open Access is changing the library and information worlds and would like to engage with the topic while also enjoying a couple of days on the shores of the Baltic, please register today. See you in Gdansk!
