Fiesole Retreat journeys to South Africa
Connecting Global North and Global South: African Perspectives in Scholarly Communications
The 2024 Fiesole Collection Development Retreat
will take place in Cape Town
, South Africa, on 7-8th May
The location reflects the conference theme of connecting global North and global South. By bringing the Retreat to South Africa, and with the generous and valuable collaboration of ITOCA (Information Training & Outreach Centre for Africa) and CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources), we aim to faciltate a truly global discussion as we seek strategies to reflect, protect and preserve the diversity and richness of the world's scholarly information channels and the cultural heritage collections for the future, with a focus on African perspectives, inclusion and equity in scholarly communications.
A number of contributors and participants from important African research institutions, together with leading publishers and librarians from across the globe, and a rich social programme, ensure that this year's Retreat will be a rare and invaluable opportunity for cultivating collaboration - and forging relationships - across continents.
Registration is now open.
