Save the date for the 2024 Fiesole Retreat in Cape Town

In collaboration with ITOCA, the 24th Fiesole Collection Development Retreat will be held in Cape Town, South Africa on 7-8 May 2024.  

The meeting offers a valuable opportunity for a truly global conversation that puts Africa at the very heart of the programme, helping to bridge the gap between North and South and giving voice to unique African perspectives that have, until now, been less represented in scholarly publishing and Western library collections.

Join leading publishers and librarians in Cape town to contribute to the discussion around themes of both local and international importance as we seek strategies to reflect, protect and preserve the heterogeneity and richness of the world’s scholarly information channels and the cultural heritage collections for the future.

An international non-governmental organization working to build capacity amongst the research and education communities, ITOCA aims to initiate a recurrent collection development conversation in the African region.

Since 1999, the Fiesole Retreat conference series has brought together libraries, publishers, bibliographic agencies, aggregators, and vendors, with the desire to foster and stimulate dialogue and collaboration across the scholarly communication sector.
