Study tour of Libraries in Southern France and in Paris
May 20 – June 5 2011
Organized by Université de Montréal School of library and information science (EBSI), within its Master degree in Information Science accredited by ALA, this international summer seminar can either be taken for academic credit or on a non-credit basis. .
For graduate LIS students it is an exciting opportunity to earn six graduate LIS credits (SCI- International and comparative aspects of information science and SCI-6343- Special topics). For library professionals it is an excellent way to learn about recent developments of libraries in France.
The focus will be on:
- library architecture
- cooperation and management of libraries
- use of open source library management systems
- use of social media
- library programs.
The tour starts in Villeurbanne with a presentation of the French Library system at the École nationale supérieure des sciences de l’information et des bibliothèques (ENSSIB), the most important library school in France which is a partner of the program.
Libraries visited (public, academic and the Bibliothèque nationale de France) are all located in recently built buildings.
The registration fee covering travel, hotels and organization is 3250$ CAD (leaving from Montreal), excluding tuition fees.
Language requirements: all presentations will be in French. It is recommended to have a basic knowledge of French to register (a short immersion course prior departure might be organized on demand, provided we have a minimum of students)
