Berlin will host the 100th Deutsche Bibliothekartag from 7 to 10 June 2011 under the slogan “Libraries for the Future – Future for the Libraries”. The largest central advanced training seminar and scientific conference for the German librarianship has been organised and brought to you by the Berufsverband Information Bibliothek (BIB) and the Verein Deutscher Bibliothekare (VDB) in cooperation with the Deutscher Bibliotheksverband (dbv).
This anniversary celebration of Librarian Day focuses on the future. What challenges will libraries face in the next years, what does society expect of them and what do libraries have to offer society? At the same time, the 100th anniversary also calls for a look back: What have we achieved in the last years, how have we solved the obstacles in our way, and where do we stand now?
Participants will be animated to discuss and benefit from the theoretical, methodical and practical contributions from all fields of the library and the wealth of information of the inland as well as foreign countries.
