  • Improving librarian skills

It will be the opportunity to share experiences, discuss the recent developments and future perspectives.

Come to Warsaw to take part in the IATUL Conference to exchange views and learn how to improve library partnerships within the university and between the libraries - members of IATUL. This will be the time for professional and social meetings, a unique chance to visit Warsaw and taste the Polish culture and cuisine, experience the hospitality of Polish people.

Looking forward to seeing you in Poland in May / June 2011.
