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 »

FLUX ET FORMES DES ESPACES DE LA CULTURE

Architecture and libraries: flows and forms in spaces dedicated to culture

This one day symposium took place at the 29th January, 2015 and was held at the Lyon Central Library. It was co-organized by the Central Public Library of Lyon (BML) and École Nationale Supérieure des Sciences de l’Information et des Bibliothèques (enssib).

Gilles Eboli, director of BML, and Thierry Ermakoff from enssib have opened the one day symposium. In the morning session all talks were in French. Thus, for me it was not possible to understand much. But here is the program in French.

In the afternoon session three international speakers were invited. Read more »

Organizing a student workshop: my experience with SWiF 2014

In Germany, we have quite a few universities as well as universities of applied science were you can study information science. Generally, these institutions have their own curricula and the students do not necessarily know other institutions. Even if researchers and lecturers from different institutions may have met at conferences, workshops or on other occasions, the students usually have not. This changed when Katrin Weller, Isabella Peters and Dirk Lewandowski had the idea of organizing a student workshop for research in information science called SWiF. The first SWiF took place in 2010 in Düsseldorf. Since then, the workshop was repeated every year at different locations in Germany, giving students from different institutions in the German-speaking region the opportunity to meet fellow students and to present their own research results.
