QQML2009: Call For papers for special session

Special session on Digital Sustainability
Coordinated by: Dr Gillian Oliver (gillian.oliver at vuw.ac.nz) and Professor G
E Gorman, ( Gary.Gorman at vuw.ac.nz ) School of Information Management,

Scope & rationale 
The compelling need to develop solutions to manage digital information in
today's complex and dynamic environment has tended to focus the attention of
researchers on technical problems. To ensure digital sustainability over the
long term however, there is a need to explore social and cultural factors
that influence the success of digital preservation initiatives. The purpose
of this session is to report on research into the problems of digital
preservation and access, to identify the major research questions and
appropriate methodologies. 

Topics could include, but are not limited to:
*    Attitudes of users to digital repositories
*    Cultural differences in approach to digital preservation 
*    Collaborative activity between libraries, archives and museums
*    End-user interface design
