*Acquisitions and Collection Development Section Open Session: Call for
*Open Access Converging on Collection Development *
Collection development is traditionally focused on purchasing and licensing
print and electronic publications and content for users. The number and
diversity of Open Access (OA) materials – materials freely and universally
available via the Internet – is constantly increasing. OA resources are
becoming extremely important way for users to get information they need.
When discussing library collections it is important not to ignore open
access materials but to include them more and more in the big picture of
collection development and management. From the point of view of the
library OA is an opportunity but brings many challenges. Open access also
challenges and changes the traditional concept of collection.
How to promote access to free digital resources? How to integrate OA
journals and monographs, open data, open educational resources and open
government resources into collection development policies and action and
workflows of the library?
This session intends to examine Open Access in the context of library
collection development and management. Suggested subthemes, with a focus on
innovation and best practices for potential speakers to consider:
· Integrating Open Access issues to collection development policies
· Advancing, promoting and facilitating access to OA resources in
the context of collection development and acquisitions: supporting options
of OA publishing (e.g. Green, Gold OA), OA business models
· Finding, selecting and evaluating OA resources; perpetual access
· Workflow processes and practices
· Library and library consortia cooperation
The section invites speakers from all library environments (academic,
public, government, school, special) who can address any of these themes in
a 15 minute presentation at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress
in Lyon, France (16-22 August 2014). The goal is to create a diverse
program of 4-6 speakers representing libraries from different parts of the
world who have different experiences to share.
Proposed papers must be original and not have been published elsewhere.
It is hoped that all selected presenters will be able to prepare a formal
paper, as well as Power Point slides. Selected presenters are encouraged
to submit a paper in advance which supports their planned presentation and
which will be made available through the IFLA's institutional repository, the
IFLA Library <http://library.ifla.org/>. At the minimum, speakers must prepare
presentation slides and in advance a substantial abstract, including
references if relevant, such as URLs and bibliographies. The abstract is
made available through the IFLA Library.
Presentations can be made in any of the official IFLA languages: Arabic,
Chinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, but an accompanying
translation of all papers into English must be provided.

Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Authors of accepted papers have
to sign IFLA’s Author Form.
*15 February* *2014* – Deadline for submitting 300 word proposals for
