There are lot of places across Europe for students to study Information Science and /or Library Science. This webinar is part of the series “Information Science and Library Science across Europe”, where representatives from schools and universities present themselves as study and research hub and give an overview of their activities. Students can get directly in touch with professors and researchers and ask questions about research activities and lectures. This time, we invited Ernesto Priego from the City University in London (UK) and Sergej Sizov from the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (D).

This webinar is also a good opportunity for researchers and professors to get in touch with each other. Read more »
