The “Bibliothekartag” (Librarian’s Day), the biggest conference of librarians in Germany, took place at Mannheim. 3.100 colleagues participated at many panels, workshops and meetings. The motto of the conference was “Libraries in Information Society” and one focus was “state of the art”: Where do we stay now – and in 10 years. It’s quite interesting that this topic was completed with the panel “Shakers and movers of information – where do we stand internationally?” with colleagues of UK, Australia, and Israel. At the repository of “Berufsverband Information Bibliothek” you can get the powerpoint-sheets of some of the speeches of librarian’s day.
