Our network is still working on the main topics. We have involved new members from other countries and we are trying to get funding for our research. In October we had a meeting in Den Haag in which our research topic was worked out more in detail. Olindo sent us a foto of the work they did in that workshop. It gives an impression of the relation between public libraries and the cities.
We hope that we get the possibility (i.e. the funding) to work further on this model. So far the cooperation in our network is very fruitful and I guess that everybody learns from the experience and the exchange of ideas.
On 24 to 25 August 2015 the second workshop of the Network on Libraries in Urban Space takes place in Oslo. Main objectives are to discuss the current state of research and to elaborate a joint research proposal and to evaluate possibilities for further cooperation in the network.
the workshop started with a presentation by Ragnar Audunson on Oslo as a City of Public Libraries.
From November 11 until 14, 2014 an international workshop of the Network on Libraries in Urban Space will take place at HTW Chur/Switzerland.
The International Exploratory Workshop will deal with questions concerning Public Libraries and the contemporary city. It will treat questions from the fields of library and information science, architecture as well as sociology in an interdisciplinary manner.
This workshop is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). The number of participants is limited. Researchers in the field of Public Libraries and Urban Space can apply for participation – not only to the workshop but also to the Network NLUS. Please contact us using the contact form.
