5th Erasmus Staff Mobility Week – For Librarians

Σεπτέμβριος 3 @ 08:00 - Σεπτέμβριος 7 @ 17:00

The Library and Information Center of the University of Patras happily announces its 5th Erasmus Staff Mobility Week for Librarians. We welcome fellow librarians and library staff working in Academic and Research Libraries or similar institutions to share their knowledge and expertise and help create a strong network of libraries in Europe.

The program will include presentations and workshops of the Library and Information Center’s services and on-going projects, as well as cultural events, combining thus education and recreation.

We expect our applicants to have knowledge on areas, such as cataloguing, circulation, digitization, open access and information literacy, without of course excluding other professionals working in a Library.

Cost

We do not charge any participation fee, but visitors will cover their own expenses for travel and accommodation. Some meals and coffees are included in the program. Participants are encouraged to use the Erasmus Mobility Grant.

Application

The electronic application form can be found below. Please, send your application as soon as possible, but no later than April 15th, 2018.
