MIT Libraries host Kosovar librarians

On November 1st and 8th the MIT Libraries will host a group of nine librarians from the National University Library of Kosovo. The Kosovar librarians will learn about MIT’s libraries, the benefits and challenges of digital information, integrated library computer systems and contemporary management techniques. While in the U.S., the librarians will also take classes at Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science as part of a program funded by the U.S. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The goal of the program is to introduce the Kosovar librarians to new skills and systems that can be used in support of university librarianship in Kosovo.
