Libraries and Librarianship in the Czech Republic
June 1-15, 2003

The Prague Summer Seminar offers an exciting opportunity for any librarian
interested in libraries and librarianship abroad.  A few more spaces
remain,  so don't miss this exciting opportunity to explore libraries and
librarianship in the Czech Republic!

The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North
Carolina (SILS) and the faculty of Information Studies at Charles University
in Prague invite you to spend two weeks in Prague, a city many consider to
be one of the most beautiful in the world. The seminar, led by Dean Joanne
Marshall of SILS at UNC-CH and faculty from Charles University, will provide
an overview of libraries and librarianship in the Czech Republic.  The
seminar will examine both the rich history of librarianship in the Czech
Republic and the effects of the democratization of this former communist
state on the accessibility of information. A large number of various types
of libraries will be visited both in Prague and in other cities of the Czech

The seminar provides a wonderful opportunity to learn not only about
libraries but also about the Czech nation and culture. Free time is allotted
to enjoy the many sights and cultural events available in Prague and the
outlying countryside.
