Koç University Suna Kıraç Library Presents "Library Staff Week 2020"

Koç University Suna Kıraç Library Presents "Library Staff Week 2020"

For the third continuous time, Koç University Libraries are organizing an "International Library Staff" Week in Istanbul, between 06-10 April 2020.  The event brings together professional Library staff with varied backgrounds working in universities or other research orientated libraries with an interest in sharing ideas and networking with colleagues.

This year the week will focus on engagement.  Librarians are relationship builders for their campuses and they recognize the value of building essential, foundational community relationships.  Engagement can be established in academic issues, in users, in research, in scholarship, in technology and many more.  Our workshops, presentations and discussions can cover different areas of ongoing engagement efforts such as Data Science and User Research, Assessment, Open Science, Scholarly Publishing, Data Management, Metrics, Information Visualization (IV), Research oriented IL, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Fake News, Outreach services, Digital Transformation, Sustainability, Digital Humanities, Conservation – Preservation of audiovisual Cultural Heritage materials, etc.

Through this week, library staff and visitors will have the chance to engage into fruitful discussions and exchange of professional and personal experiences, which will broaden their perspective on issues related to Information Science, strengthen their skills and hopefully plant the roots for future collaboration on joint projects.
