The conference theme for The Asian Conference on Library, Archive and Information Management (ACLAIM2016) is “Preserving Heritage”, and the organisers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other LAIM-related topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

According to Wikipedia, “preservation refers to the set of activities that aims to prolong the life of a record and relevant metadata, or enhance its value, or improve access to it through non-interventive means. This includes actions taken to influence records creators prior to selection and acquisition.” Obviously, a wide range of organisations, including libraries, archives, museums, galleries, academic institutes, together with professionals and educators in various disciplines, as well as policy makers, are involved.

In this conference, participants are invited to explore and enquire ways in which the initiatives and efforts carried out by the LAIM professionals could bring progress and positive changes to the preservation of heritage worldwide. Abstracts should address one or more of the streams below, identifying a relevant documentary/cultural heritage preservation sub-theme:

    Technological trends and developments
    Domestic, national and international efforts
    Public & private partnerships
    Organisational management
    Professional training & education
    Intangible objects
