We are delighted to announce that the University of Maribor Library will host the 6th traditional Erasmus+ Staff Training Week for Librarians.

The ESTW for librarians will be organised as a blended intensive programme with online and live sessions. The online sessions will be organised from 3 to 7 June 2024, and the live programme is scheduled from 24 to 28 June 2024. 

The ESTW for librarians is a joint project of the University of Maribor Library and the University of Maribor. A preliminary programme is enclosed, but it can still be subject to change.

The online sessions of the ESTW will have two parts. Participants are expected to give presentations about their home libraries in the first part of the online sessions. In the second part, services and activities of the University of Maribor Library will be presented so that there will be more time to discuss important topics according to the participants’ wishes in the live workshops. A visit to a faculty library and social programme focusing on cultural heritage will also be organised.

The call is open until 28 March 2024. The selection procedure will be finished on 29 March 2024, and we will confirm your application on the same day. The number of participants is limited to 30. Should there be more applications, we might accept only one person from an individual library.

Former participants evaluated our ESTW programme as excellent, and you are kindly invited to come and experience it for yourself. You can check the ESTW webpage https://estw.ukm.um.si/ and watch a short movie about our last year’s event that was made by one of the participants.

Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPs) represent an added value for participants in comparison with regular staff training weeks as they combine physical and virtual mobility. As regards the administrative procedures of reporting the BIPs in the Beneficiary Module, the only difference is that the “Blended intensive programme” option must be ticked when entering the mobilities. The funding is drawn from the staff mobility for training fund.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Maribor.
