Participants in the International School on the Digital Library and E-publishing for Science and Technology
From 3 to 8 March CERN became an information exchange when it hosted the "International Spring School on the Digital Library and E-publishing for Science and Technology". The aim was to share knowledge among the various parties that provide a scientific information service to the CERN users, such as academic libraries, research libraries, publishers, and of course CERN itself. The school involved 50 participants and 17 speakers from countries as far away as Japan and the USA. "The event provided an international forum to advance the state of scientific digital libraries", says the course director Rick Luce, research library director at Los Alamos National Laboratory. "As a result, we believe this will make a tangible contribution to improving the scholarly resources and electronic services available to physicists throughout Europe and beyond."
