[IFLA-L] Introducing the IFLA Library – the new repository for managing IFLA’s World Library and Information Congress content

Dear colleagues,
IFLA President Ingrid Parent today launched the IFLA Library (library.ifla.org), a repository for IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) papers and, in future, other IFLA publications:
“This improved accessibility to IFLA’s publishing, through the IFLA Library, will bring real benefits to participants at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress, to IFLA members, and to library and information professionals worldwide. I congratulate all those who worked hard to implement this project and I look forward to the further enhancements to come over the next year.”
Genevieve Clavel-Merrin, Chair of the Governing Board’s Repository Working Group welcomed the launch:
“The project Working Group members are all delighted to see this become a reality. The IFLA Library allows IFLA to share, manage, and archive its documents, and I look forward to seeing it grow and develop.”
The IFLA Library is part of IFLA’s Digital Content Programme Key Initiative, and is designed to provide a repository to collect together IFLA’s own publications for ease of location, search, display and preservation. IFLA selected EPrints Services to build and host the repository.
Over 160 papers are already available, and more will be added before the IFLA WLIC 2013 in Singapore, which takes place from 18 – 22 August 2013.
In line with IFLA’s Open Access and Copyright Policy, authors of papers accepted for the Congress have assigned a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported licence (CC BY 3.0) to their work. This licence enables IFLA to make copies of the papers available in its repository and permits the widest possible dissemination and use of the papers.
Following the 2013 Congress, presentation slides will also be made available where permission is granted by the speaker.
All content will be discoverable via Google and Google Scholar and development of the IFLA Library platform will continue to enhance the search, browse and help facilities for users.
The IFLA Library is available from the IFLA home page and is also linked from the WLIC programme from where Congress participants can search, read, browse, and download papers.
For further information please contact Joanne Yeomans.
