*Call for Papers for the 43rd IASA Annual Conference*

*New Delhi, India, 6 – 11 October 2012*

*Theme: In Transition: Access for All*

** **

Access to information is widely perceived as an uncontested good, a right
of the same order as access to clean water and electricity.  UNESCO says
that universal access will empower people if “they can access and
contribute to information and knowledge flows,” and that a digital
infrastructure will provide it.  Governments all over the world mouth
support for these aspirations and the public has come to expect access to
all sorts of information wherever and whenever they want and need it,
including, and perhaps especially, sound and audiovisual content.****

** **

With all the resources and effort expended on digitisation we would expect
that by now access to our audiovisual collections should have become
universally easier, and the online facilities that could provide unlimited
and unmediated access to this content should -- given its unprecedented
use. Yet, all too often we can only access catalogues with no access to the
actual sound, lists with no video, information about information, but not
the information itself. ****

The laws and policies that control use, the technologies that deliver it,
and the costs and distribution of resources present barriers to our
aspirations.  Are we being realistic? Are these constraints now permanently
built into the system, or are we just in transition on the way to achieve
universal access to the knowledge dissemination systems?****

** **

What can be done to ensure that our collections are becoming accessible?
How do we deal with copyright?  Are strategies in place to ensure
accessibility to our collections?  Do the technical systems and
infrastructure truly support it?****

** **

This conference aims to investigate and discuss the issues pertaining to
access alongside the following subthemes:****

Copyright and IP:****

**·         **Copyright and access: does protection of the individual's
rights outweigh the universal right to access?****

**·         **How do we circumvent copyright appropriately and provide
access for all?****

**·         **Access, copyright and reasonable risk****

**·         **Orphan works and wider access****

** **

Technologies****

**·         **Tools that provide access and systems that restrict****

**·         **Technical infrastructure and information access****

**·         **Portable devices, and sound and audiovisual collections****

** **

Users:****

**·         **Defining the user****

**·         **Increasing use, attracting new users****

**·         **From the user perspective: how are people using access? (how
access changed the way...?)****

**·         **Examining how increased access can affect collection
decisions such as acquisition, preservation, and documentation.****

** **

Access:****

**·         **Access and authenticity****

**·         **Successes and failures of providing access in the digital
domain****

**·         **The impact of access on our archives****

**·         **Indigenous use and appropriate access****

**·         **Ethics and access****

**·         **What does access mean?****

**·         **Online vs traditional access – access multiplied or context
lost?****

**·         **Leveraging access with increased usage of archives****

**·         **Sustainable access****

**·         **Innovation and access****

**·         **What strategies are research organisations and broadcasters
planning for access?****

**·         **Collaborations and partnerships to make access possible****

**·         **Open access: between freedom and control.****

** **

Online Access****

**·         **Semantic web and access****

**·         **Free access or mediated access?  Gatekeeper or facilitator?
The role of reference staff.****

**·         **Access tools/set of tools – access on- and offline****

** **

Funding****

**·         **The affordability of free access/access for all****

**·         **How realistic is access for all from a funding perspective?***
