Constance Malpas to present keynote at Keio University shared print forum on 28 February in Tokyo, Japan

 

OCLC Research Program Officer Constance Malpas will present the keynote "Many paths, one moon: the future of academic print management in Japan" at the shared print forum,  The Future of Print Management in Japanese University Libraries, on 28 February at the Keio University-Mita Campus in Tokyo, Japan. This broad-based research library event is being convened by Keio University Mita Media Center, an OCLC Research Library Partner, based on the OCLC Research investigation into shared print management efforts that was recently published in the report, Understanding the Collective Collection: Towards a System-wide Perspective on Library Print Collections. Printed copies of the report will be made available for attendees at the forum, which is at capacity.

Constance Malpas, a co-author of the report, will provide the context for understanding the emergence of shared print management efforts in North America in her keynote presentation, as well as introduce core concepts and definitions, and explore some potential applications of shared print approaches in Japanese university libraries. Her presentation slides will be posted on the OCLC Research website and on SlideShare following the forum.
