European Librarians Theatre at Online Information 2010 to focus on topical issues facing librarians

leave a comment »

Online Information, the largest UK event dedicated to the information industry, will host The European Librarians Theatre at this year’s exhibition.

The theatre will feature panel discussions focussing on topical issues facing librarians. The discussions will be led by speakers from a number of different European countries to provide a variety of viewpoints. These sessions will address the impact of new technologies on the role of the librarian and library management. 

SLA Europe has enlisted expert panellists from across Europe, and the wider world. Together with their audiences they will examine the impact of digitisation, mobile technologies and social media on librarians, libraries and their users. 

 Panellists from Italy, France , the Netherlands and the UK are expected to exchange their experiences of libraries going digital.

In putting social media under the spotlight, Jakob Harnesk from EBSCO and a panel from Spain, France (including myself!), Sweden and the UK will draw on evidence from Europe-wide surveys to help predict the future for 21st century librarians.

Complete details of the programme are available online at
