Menschen im Aufbruch = People on the path to the future – Commemorative publication for Maria Seissl, Head of the University Library Vienna, Austria

What a good idea. Instead of articles of prominent representatives of our profession about librarianship or tasks for librarians in the future this publication gave a voice to the employees of the University Library in Vienna, Austria. And these librarians described their working field and their future tasks.

Of course interesting for the community of CPDWL is the area of the continuing professional development.

Since 2015 they offer certificate courses with three modules each as a further education format. Depending on the area of ​​activity, the participants decide for one of the three courses “Lead Libraries”, “Inventory Management in Libraries and Information Facilities” or “Data Librarian”. The special characteristic of these courses is the exciting exchange of participants that results from dividing the three individual modules into the partner university libraries of Vienna, Graz and Innsbruck.

Beside this they also offer continuing development courses for Austrian librarians. The courses take place also in Vienna, Graz and Innsbruck. The programme encompasses topics such as electronic resources, legal and data protection, repositories, indexing and specially tailored courses that are of great relevance to all library staff and guarantee practice-oriented and specialized training

The open access version of the publication (sorry, only in German):
