Subject Repositories: European collaboration in the international context

January 28-29, 2010

The British Library ConferenceCentre, London

 

 

You are invited to an international conference with a range of speakers from around the world. The two-day programme will allow delegates to find out about repository trends across three continents.

The conference, which is the first of its kind, will explore the development of subject repositories worldwide and will see the launch of Economists Online, the key output of an EC-funded subject repository project managed by the Nereus consortium of top international economics libraries. Nereus members will showcase this subject repository in both plenary and parallel sessions, sharing lessons learned and engaging delegates in discussions of the main issues such as content recruitment, search and retrieval services, usage statistics and data sets. The two-day programme will also put Economists Online into the wider context and will allow delegates to hear about repository trends across three continents.

Among the speakers are Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information, Cathrine Harboe-Ree, University Librarian at Monash University, who led the ARROW project and is involved in leading the ANDS project, Christian Zimmermann, Economics professor at the University of Connecticut, and Javier Hernández-Ros, Head of Access to Information Unit, Directorate General for Information Society and Media, European Commission. Professor Nick Barr of the London School of Economics will launch the Economists Online portal.

The delegate fee is £155 (approximately €170 or US$245) and includes attendance at plenary and parallel sessions, refreshments during breaks, two lunches and VAT. For further information about how to book, speakers, travel information and hotels, please visit: www.neeoconference.eu
