Eugenides Foundation, Nov. 15-16, 2013, Athens
This year’s conference will focus on the relationship between
education and libraries, which is becoming closer and closer since
information technology is getting more and more involved.
Libraries aspire to become the hub regarding partnerships among
librarians, educators and information specialists for the sake of
education at various levels.
For this reason, international, as well as Greek speakers dealing
with education, library information and communication technology
will deliver talks on topics such as gaming and libraries for
educational purposes, network and resource sharing, encouraging
reading and library literacy, using all the existing opportunities
offered through technology.
Consequently, the potential audience will not only consist of
Librarians from various kinds of libraries, but also educators,
teachers and IT specialists.

Nordic Library two Finnish Librarians Ms Terhi Piikkilä and
Ms Sara Nordlund-Laurent, Pedagogical information
specialists, Vaasa’s City Public Library, shall hold a lecture
