Dear Colleagues,

We hope to meet many of you at our International Week 2017, which we will host the week of 24th April. Due to demand for places and a wish to favour diversity, we will try to represent as many countries as possible. As in other years, we will limit our numbers to maximum 50 visitors and this may mean that, regretfully, we will not be able to accept all applications.

There are two separate application documents, one for librarian staff and another for all other visitors. Any extra information you would like to include on the form regarding activities or meetings you would like to include in your agenda during the week would be useful. We expect our visitors to follow the general programme, but whenever possible are delighted to arrange specific meetings to make the event more productive for everyone.

The programme will be updated over the coming weeks and in early April, we will send more detailed information about the Thursday morning sessions and presentations. If you feel you have a presentation that would be of interest and would like to present, please include this information along with the title of the presentation on your application form. Presentations should be about 20 minutes long with another 10 minutes allowed for questions. I hope it will not offend anyone if I point out  that we will not include presentations of partner universities in our agenda, but will leave our visitors to inform on their home universities at the many networking opportunities provided during the week.

We are willing to accept applications up until the 15/3/2017, but may have a complete list before then.

If any partner has a problem with the links (Application, General Application and Provisional Programme), please write to me at and I will send you the documents as attachments.

Kind regards,
