Description of the event

The session is open to all (no conference fee). Due to limited space, please register on this site by 15 August 2017.

This all-day session takes place at the Wroclaw University Library, which is close to the center of the city and easily reached by public transportation. There is also tram service between the Wroclaw University Library and the Congress venue.

The speakers and participants will explore historical and current practices for managing and providing access to collections that have crossed borders using case studies from around the world. A closing panel will discuss a set of draft guidelines for libraries to consider when acquiring and managing “non-patrimonial” books and collections. Group discussion will be encouraged throughout the day. For complete program information, visit https://iflarbscs.hypotheses.org/441
