Abstract

Digitally reassembling scattered collections: IFLA, the Memory of the World, and the implementation of the new UNESCO’s Recommendation for Documentary Heritage

The goal of this paper: (1) to give examples of activities in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme that can count as instances of ‘reconstitution’ as defined in UNESCO’s 2015 Recommendation on Documentary Heritage; (2) to encourage a discussion amongst IFLA experts on what role IFLA should play in the digital ‘reconstitution’ discussion. This ties in with the IFLA’s Key Initiative 3.2.2: Instigate debate and exchange of ideas to explore collection and access issues for libraries in digital / virtual repatriation of documentary cultural heritage content.
