Dare to share: long-term collections management
6 September 2010, Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, London
This one day conference examined how libraries and other research institutions can benefit from integrating preservation into broader, long-term collections management strategies, with a particular emphasis on collaborative preservation ventures. Speakers from the UK and abroad presented current thinking on hybrid collections; using collection strengths to inform integrated strategies for resource allocation; how digitisation affects what we keep; protecting investment in digitisation projects; the carbon footprint of preservation; and whether the UK Research Reserve should or could be used as a model for other library materials.
