Call for Papers - Genealogy and Local History Section

At the Conference of International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, IFLA in Berlin, 1-9 August 2003, the Genealogy and Local History Section is planning an open session with the theme:

Cooperation between archives, libraries and museums

We would like papers on the subject, both from institutions with cooperation already, and also from institutions with no cooperation.

In Norway, as an example, the Norwegian Museum Authority, the National Office for Research Documentation, Academic and Special Libraries in Norway and The Norwegian Directorate for Public Libraries will be one institution from next year.

We will be interested in having papers worldwide dealing with the subject from all points of view.

If you are interested in presenting a paper on the topic, please send your proposal (title and brief synopsis with your name, affiliation and address, preferred in a Word e-mail attachment, but fax or mail copies will be alright) by December 10, 2002 to:
