Dear BIBLIST list subscribers,


We would like to draw your attention to the successful International
Summer School on the Digital Library, which will be held for the
eighth year in a row in Europe this Summer, right after the IFLA
Conference in Berlin. We've always had quite a number of
applications from Sweden and hope that this year, again, we are
able to welcome Swedish librarians.


The 2001 Summer School courses were extensively discussed in a
D-Lib article
(http://www.dlib.org/dlib/november01/prinsen/11prinsen.html).


For the first time, part of the courses (course 1 and 2 ) are aimed
at senior managers. Also, the courses are shorter (2 or 3 days)
than in the past years.


The following courses will be organised:

Press release


Eighth International Summer School on the Digital Library


In the summer of 2003, the International Summer School on the
Digital Library will be held for the eighth year in a row. This year,
the Summer School will consist of three courses that will be held
at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, right after the IFLA
Conference in Berlin. Every year, the Summer School is updated to
respond to the most recent developments.


So far, 440 librarians from 52 different countries have attended the
very successful Summer School. Last year, more then 90 per cent
indicated they would recommend the Summer School to
colleagues in the field.




Course 1: Leaders’ Visions on the Library of the Future

(Tilburg, 11 August - 12 August 2003)

This new course aims to discuss and develop visions for the future,
thus enabling library managers to anticipate trends when
developing their strategic plans and library policies. Course director
is Hans Geleijnse, Director of Information Service and Systems at
the European University Institute in Florence. This course aims at
library managers/directors, other senior managers, and those
aspiring to these positions, from academic and research libraries.
The course also targets senior managers from publishing houses.


The subject will be approached from different points of view, the
chief ones being

IT developments relevant to libraries, the future of electronic
publishing, e-learning, and e-science, supporting collaborative
work, better focused services (customisation and personalization),
keeping up with the customer (user behaviour, usage, and
statistics), the problems of e-only and digital archiving, surviving is
co-operating, organisational and staff development, and strategic
planning in the 21st century.


Course 2: Change: Making it Happen in your Library

(Tilburg, 13 August – 15 August)

The course aims to identify new opportunities for libraries, to
support librarians in developing a vision, and to provide librarians
with tools to initiate a change in their own organisation. Course
director is Jan Wilkinson, University Librarian and Keeper of the
Brotherton Collection at Leeds University Library. The programme
is designed for library managers/directors, deputy
librarians/directors, and other senior managers involved in strategic
change in academic and research libraries.


The following subjects will be dealt with: the changing outside
world, library vision, new ways of supporting research and learning,
strategic planning, models and frameworks for change
management, managing the process of change, organisational
change, managing resistance, communication, human resource
aspects of change, human resource management, and
improvement programmes.


Course 3: Libraries, Electronic Resources, and Electronic
Publishing

(Tilburg, 25 August  – 27 August)

Hans Geleijnse, Director of Information Service and Systems at the
European University Institute in Florence is the director of this
course which aims to support university and research libraries in
the current transitional phase and to identify new roles and
opportunities for them. The course is designed for library
managers/directors, IT or systems librarians, licensing officers, and
digital library project managers from academic and research
libraries. The course is highly relevant for publishers.


The following themes will be dealt with: changes in the information
chain, new roles for publishers, the library as an information
gateway and publisher, the economics of journal publishing,
copyright, licensing and library consortia, the art of negotiation,
electronic pre-prints and document servers, preservation and digital
archiving, and reference linking.
