             [BOAI] Subject Repositories conference from peter.suber AT

[Forwarding from Kieron Jones of University College London.  --Peter Suber.]

Places are still available for an international 
conference 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 (approx. 175 and 
US$250) and includes attendance at plenary and 
parallel sessions, refreshments during breaks, 
two lunches and VAT. For further information
