World Library and Information Congress : 78th IFLA General Conference and Assembly 11-17 August 2012, Helsinki, Finland

IFLA Acquisitions & Collection Development Section is calling for papers for this year’s upcoming Congress on the theme “Treating Print in an Increasing Digital Collection: Issues, Dilemmas & Directions”  The sponsors admit that reader preferences indicate “a leaning towards more online resources” contributing to “the perception of print potentially becoming  endangered.” However, the contention here is that  print “will not disappear” and that “print in the short and long term, will contribute to the overall Congress’ theme “Libraries: A Force for Change,” particularly as print “integrates with a growing digital collection.”
