Digital Transformation
16 - 21 September 2019 at Stuttgart Media University, Germany

Stuttgart Media University is pleased to announce its LIS Summer School 2019 as a joint project with the Goethe-Institut. The 2019 Summer School will be held in Stuttgart, Germany from September 16th to 21th 2019. Students of Library and Information Science (LIS) and related fields together with LIS practitioners are invited to join in and work collaboratively in an international setting.

The week comprises four seminars approaching the main theme "Digital Transformation" from different perspectives. It offers opportunities to discuss the mission of libraries of being socially committed, innovative and accessible to all. The event is organized by the Department of Information sciences.

The summer school aims to:
  • explore the opportunities and challenges of change and development in libraries and information services
  • discuss different aspects of the future of libraries and information management.
This year's Summer School is divided in two consecutive slots. Each of them comprises two parallel seminars so that participants can attend two seminars during the week. All seminars are held in English language.
