    New shape of sharing: networks, expertise, information

    A forum on current issues in European librarianship

    The New Shape of Sharing: Networks, Expertise, Information continues conversations begun at the New Directions Symposium held in Frankfurt in 2017. This multi-day forum of panel presentations, a poster session, and interactive breakout sessions on key issues facing Western European collections and public services will encourage both structured and unstructured debate. We will advance our understanding of the challenges and initiate action in three areas: design new models for collaborative collection development and services; explore a growing range of content and format types and what they mean for libraries and researchers, and highlight the evolving role of libraries and librarians in the research process.

    Ethiopian Studies and Digital Humanities: tools and projects

    Beta maṣāḥəft, Ethiopian Manuscript Archives, EthioMap

    The objective of this workshop is to create the conditions for the emergence of a scientific community using digital collaborative tools within Ethiopian studies. There is no need to recall the scientific and technological context in which we live to understand the importance and challenges of this methodological revolution. Many initiatives have emerged over the past two decades, both in terms of the availability of digitized documentation and the tools to use it. After the first experiments, interoperability and sharing have become the key words, and Ethiopian studies must respond to these good practices.

    Open Access platforms: models, trends and problematics

    L’Associazione Italiana Biblioteche organise le 25 mars à Florence une journée d’études intitulée Les plateformes en Open Access : modèles, tendances, défis. L’Open Access est aujourd’hui un sujet stratégique pour les bibliothèques universitaires. De meilleurs résultats de l’accès ouvert aux publications universitaires sont obtenus quand celles-ci les diffusent sur des plateformes qui les rendent facilement identifiables et accessibles. Les plateformes de dimension européenne et internationale  jouent un rôle important dans le développement de l’Open Access quand elle sont relayées par des acteurs provenant de plusieurs pays qui eux mêmes collaborent directement avec les communautés scientifiques qui produisent des publications. Les plateformes en Open Access ont également un rôle à jouer dans le développement d’outils bibliométriques qui facilitent le peer reviewing et optimisent la diffusion des contenus.

    Recovering the cartulary

    The digital edition of the Becerro Galicano of San Millán de la Cogolla

    Le cartulaire dit Becerro Galicano du monastère de San Millán de la Cogolla est une source fondamentale pour l’histoire sociale, linguistique, politique et culturelle de l’Espagne chrétienne des IXe-XIIe siècles. À l’occasion de la mise en ligne de l’édition électronique du Becerro Galicano, une rencontre internationale d’historiens et de philologues aura lieu à San Millán. La discussion aura pour objet les changements subis par certains aspects essentiels de la production du savoir historique. Le colloque prêtera bien entendu une attention particulière au renouveau des études sur les cartulaires, mais il veut aussi proposer un ensemble de réflexions plus générales sur les sources et sur leur emploi dans la construction de l’histoire et de la philologie. L’organisation du colloque propose des bourses de séjour aux étudiants et aux jeunes chercheurs.

    Reading historical sources in the digital age

    After the inaugural DHLU Symposium in 2009 that focused on "Contemporary history in the digital age" and a second edition which tackled the methodological and theoretical implications of considering websites as primary sources (March 2012), this third edition will focus on the use of online thematic research corpora. Given that more and more sources for contemporary history are being made available online as digital research corpora — as on the CVCE’s site — and following on from the first two editions which examined the methods used to develop these sources, this third edition of Digital Humanities Luxembourg will focus on the various ways in which this material is used by humanities researchers, particularly contemporary historians and more specifically specialists in European integration.
