Annual Conference Session
The International Documents Task Force (IDTF) will discuss and brainstorm about issues surrounding Open Access and publishing practices of International Government Organizations (IGOs). We will review and consider the IFLA Statement on Open Access in Intergovernmental Organisations, which "sets out the importance of meaningful open access, and underlines that – as in the case of national governments – IGOs should take appropriate steps to ensure that good quality publishing is adequately supported." An action will be considered to take the Statement to ALA Council for endorsement. The meeting will also include a short presentation and discussion on IGO data preservation practices. Representatives from IGOs in attendance will offer their perspectives.
