Migrations in Society, Culture, and the Library
Proceedings of the WESS European Conference
Paris, France, March 22, 2004

Tom Kilton
Ceres Birkhead

These papers address the broad theme of migration from a variety of vantage
points, representing not only the changing roles of libraries in a world of
migration, but also societal adaptations to immigration, ranging from
contrasting patterns of assimilation in various European countries to the
impact of the works of artists and authors who have migrated to Europe.
Specific issues include migration in digital formats, resources for
particular clusters of migration studies, the play between text and images
in the 19th century illustrated press, new projects in digital and other
library resources, the various meaning of boundaries and movements in art
and physical collections, Russian emigration, physical and format
migrations in publishing and literature, and the ongoing role of microforms
in preservation of collections. Although many of the papers were based on
theoretical research, others showcased practical new electronic means of
accessing interdisciplinary resources involving migration.
