Keywords Conferences, Libraries, Finland, Collection management

The papers from the conference, held in Kuopio, Finland in May 1999, have recently been published. The purpose of the conference was to discuss one of the main problems facing libraries: how to house printed collections, at what cost, what kind of repository and co-operative solutions exist and what are the benefits of these solutions. The papers presented covered the various approaches to repository libraries, outlining different models and their importance as part of national/regional networks. The role of repository libraries in providing access and availability to library materials, both traditional and electronic, was explored and the conference concluded with discussions on meeting the challenges of the electronic era.
