The University of Zagreb is excited to host our first International Library Staff Exchange Week in the beautiful city of Zagreb. With 31 Faculties and 3 Art Academies our University is the flagship educational institution in the country.

We are delighted to invite you to share experiences, best practices and network with colleagues. Especially during the times of the pandemic, the library's role as a vital community resource was reinforced. We wish to follow this path and also exchange information on your outreach.

The staff week is organized by our Central Office for coordination of libraries in cooperation with libraries and colleague librarians from our faculties and academies. We will introduce the library services of the University of Zagreb and our faculties. There will be opportunities to discuss the latest trends in Library and Information Science.

Through a combination of keynote speakers, group discussions and presentations by participants, we will cover the following topics:

-Open access and Open science library services: presentations and discussions

-Electronic and digital asset management and related projects

-Library - user services in crisis situations

-Library support to researchers in science and research (bibliometric analysis, data management).

All participants are invited to join in, please share your experience with your lecture or presentation on the above-mentioned topics.

The program will include a visit to four selected faculty libraries and the grand National and University Library in Zagreb.

The registration fee includes a welcome lunch, coffee breaks, farewell dinner, a sightseeing tour of the city of Zagreb and an inspiring museum visit. We invite you to explore our beautiful city of Zagreb at ZagrebInfo or at #VisitZagreb,#LoveZagreb. 

Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the participants (or using the Erasmus+ grant of  your home institution, if applicable). Please contact the International Office at your home institution as attendance may qualify as an Erasmus+ staff mobility. We are happy to sign your documents.
