The books will now be leaving Düsseldorf and be send to Düsseldorf (via private express from one door to the next ;-)), Sheffield and Copenhagen. We hope the contest participants can make use of the books (we proved the books’ content and assure they can!) and have fun with their new prizes.

The ESC will try to repeat the video contest next term and would be happy if more LIS students would participate. If you have any questions concerning the contest or if you have any suggestion for improvement please contact the ESC board.

So, bye bye, hit the road books, and don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more…(as it almost happened on their looong way to Düsseldorf ;-)).
