DIS (the Department of Information Studies) is proud to announce its ninth annual summer school programme on librarianship in collaboration with UNC SILS.

The course is organised by Andy Dawson of DIS working collaboratively with UNC SILS, and with teaching input from senior staff of DIS and senior UK professionals in the field.

Classroom sessions will be held in the Foster Court building at UCL in room G31, unless indicated otherwise. All presentations, whether at UCL or on visits, will leave time for questions and interaction. The ambience will be informal but at the same time conducive to a serious learning experience.
