International Conference to be held in Kuopio, 
Finland, 29th and 30th October 2009
Place: Taitemia, Piispankatu 8, Kuopio, Finland

The Kuopio conferences commenced identifying the 
problems which library repositories had in 
storing and preserving print resources. Through 
the first two Kuopio conferences they recognized 
that the problem was not with the local library, 
nor with the local or national repository but 
with the need for a global coordination, the 
Universal Repository Library (URL).

The Third Kuopio conference extends this 
examination of the crucial responsibility in the 
preservation of the world's literatures. Where 
the digital environment correctly is being 
identified as the future medium of preference, 
the free availability of a rich historical 
research collection from all languages and 
cultures is an increasingly prominent importance.

The URL sharply recognizes that print is with us 
forever, and the desired delivery vehicle is not 
necessarily digital. It also announces that there 
are rich and vital collections across all 
languages which should be included in this target.

This conference provides a real and sharp 
opportunity to address these issues from any 
number of perspectives. Keynote speakers are 
Steve O'Connor, University Librarian, The Hong 
Kong Polytechnic University, Derek Law, 
Professor, University of Strathclyde, Scotland 
and Kai Ekholm, Director of the National Library of Finland.

You are invited to contribute to and attend this 
conference as one of the continuing opportunities 
to focus on these very important issues. The 
language of the conference is English.

Welcome to Kuopio!

Pentti Vattulainen
Director of the National Repository Library of Finland

The National Repository Library of Finland was 
founded on March the 1st, 1989. It is meant to be 
a repository to be shared by all libraries in 
Finland as the most economical way of storing 
library material. Thus the need for building 
space for library collections is decreased and 
can be controlled. The material in the Repository 
Library is received as transfer from other 
Finnish libraries and becomes the property of the Library.
