National Library of Estonia Centennial Conference
|Date:||25 October 2018 to 26 October 2018|
The National Library of Estonia is approaching an important milestone - 2018 is the centennial year for us and also for the Republic of Estonia.
Please join us in the celebrations at an international conference we will be organising on 25-26 October in our Conference Centre. The professional conference will be addressing issues that are topical not only for national libraries but for the library community and society at large. We wish to contribute to the discussion of the resilience of libraries in our ever-changing environment.
Our conference themes include:
- challenges of the digital age
- interaction of libraries with the society
- social role of libraries
- library as a space: physical and virtual
- current functions and future prospects of national libraries
- national libraries and cultural heritage
Attending the conference is free and the professional programme will last a day and a half, followed by a social event. The working language is English. The programme is designed to bring together librarians, researchers and educators from Europe and beyond.
Registration is now open, more info about the conference is available at http://centennial.nlib.ee
