Global communication networks facilitate knowledge sharing in all aspects of scholarship. This global reach expands our horizons and brings with it serious challenges:

In the digital age, sharing of our resources is even more critical to the mission of research libraries. We must provide access to growing born–digital international resources and at the same time provide stewardship for the wealth of indigenous knowledge in all the world's country and regions. This retreat will provide an opportunity to explore these issues and share our collective wisdom.

Managing Collections at Web Scale
What are the factors that influence how large voluntary library cooperatives can be selfsustaining?

Optional Event
Guided Tour of Siena and its Cathedral
Located 50 km from Florence. Cost is 85 euro per person and includes transportation, guide, museum entrance and dinner.
The magnificent complex of the Cathedral of Siena, its Duomo, is home to numerous masterpieces representative of the development of Italian Art by the likes of Michelangelo, Donatello, Bernini and Pinturicchio. The Duomo itself constitutes one of the most illustrious examples of Romanesque-Gothic cathedrals in Italy; its inlade marble mosaic floor is "the most beautiful ... largest and most magnificent ... that ever was made" in the words of Giorgio Vasari. Adjoining the cathedral is the sixteenth century jewel, the Piccolomini Library, with its stunning frescoes and collection of illuminated manuscripts. The recently discovered and fully restored "crypt" features a colorful cycle of paintings executed by a series of artists active in Siena during the second half of the XIII century. The visit will also include a tour of the Duomo museum featuring the ultimate masterpiece of Sienese painter Duccio di Buoninsegna, the Maestà (1308–11).
From the museum, visitors climb to the terrace of the incomplete facade, which was to be part of a 14th century plan to enlarge the Duomo, for the most spectacular view onto the town of Siena. The guided tour of the Duomo complex will be followed by a leisurely walk through the town of Siena and dinner at a local trattoria.
