Turning libraries into digital culture hubs
The Romanian Academy of Scientists through the Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research “Constantin Angelescu” (ICAI), together with partners: the Central University Library “Carol I”, the National Institute for Research and Development in Computer Science – ICI Bucharest, the National Museum of Romanian Literature, the County Library “George Barițiu” in Brasov, the University Foundation “Carol I” and the DigiLib Muscel Association organize the 15th edition of the “Slove Muscelene” symposium on “Transforming libraries into digital culture hubs“.
This year’s edition is a jubilee edition that marks 15 years since the initiation of a national scientific event, which has become international over time, which will be held in a hybrid way, with physical presence in Câmpulung Muscel, Villa Golescu and online participation for other guests from the country and abroad (France, Croatia, Cyprus, Sweden).
As in previous editions, academics, university professors, researchers, historians, historians, computer scientists, directors of major libraries, publishers and companies working in the field will be invited to the event to discuss the importance of digital transformation in libraries and other cultural institutions. The impressions of the participants of the various editions will be published in a volume to be launched at the event.
The event also signifies the preservation of the “Slove Muscelene” tradition, started 15 years ago, which was attended by many personalities, such as the vice-president of the Romanian Academy and rectors of universities, directors of large institutions, prestigious researchers in library science, history, computer science. This year, the organisers have set up the Slove scholarship, worth 1000 Euro, which will be awarded to a young librarian for a training period abroad.
Please note that the entire event was and is financially supported exclusively by the organizers (Information about the editions of the “Slove Muscelene” symposium can be found at http://www.digilibmuscel.ro/).
