place at the premises of CERN in Geneva, Switzerland from Sunday
evening 9 September up to and including Friday 14 September 2001.
Lectures start on Monday at 9:00 AM.
This International Autumn School is aimed at providing knowledge
support to academic libraries, research libraries, and publishers in
the current transitional phase and to identify new roles and
opportunities for them.
The course is designed for library managers, librarians, reference
librarians, subject specialists, publishers and other information
professionals in the fields of physics, astronomy and mathematics.
Advanced libraries will mainly be addressed, without excluding the
less technically advanced libraries. Participants should complete the
course with a knowledge of:
The following subjects will be dealt with during the course:
- the current changes in the information
chain, possible roles and opportunites for physics, astronomy, and
- the strategies of other (commercial
and scholarly) players on the market;
- the organisational and technical
aspects of electronic self-publishing;
- different approaches to licensing and
the forming of consortia;
- the experiences with integrating
digital content in leading institutions.
- changes in the information chain;
