             [BOAI] Subject Repositories conference from peters AT

[Forwarding from Kieron Jones.  --Peter Suber.]

A major international conference will be taking 
place at the British Library Conference Centre in London on 28-29 January 2010:

Subject Repositories: European collaboration in the international context

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 European 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 Chuck Henry, President of 
the Council on Library and Information Resources, 
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, and Christian Zimmerman, 
Economics professor at the University of 
Connecticut. Professor Nick Barr of the London 
School of Economics will launch the Economists Online portal.

The delegate fee is 155 (approximately US$250) 
and includes attendance at plenary and parallel 
sessions, refreshments during breaks, two lunches 
and VAT. For further information about how to
