Adventures in Archiving - Call for Papers

Proposals are invited for our one-day symposium ‘Adventures in Archiving’, sponsored by the Independent Libraries Association and Heritage Lottery Fund, to be held 16th January 2019 at The Portico Library.

The deadline for proposals is the 10th December 2018. A full brief, with details on how to submit papers, can be found here.

We are eager to hear from anyone working in the information sector, especially those from smaller independent institutions, about the new challenges they are facing in both audience engagement and the archiving process. Therefore, we are welcoming submissions for 20-minute papers, and 10 minutes of questions, which can take the format of a presentation, panel session, workshop, demonstration, tutorial, or even a poster session. The general themes we are looking to discuss, but are not necessarily limited to, include:

·         Digitisation

·         Acquisitions

·         Collections care

·         Categorisation
