>From 3 - 8 March 2002, a 4.5-day course on 
digital libraries and e-publishing will be held 
on the premises of CERN in Switzerland. The 
course has been especially developed for 
librarians in the fields of science and 
technology. The course is being organised by 
Ticer B.V. and Tilburg University, renowned for 
their International Summer School on the Digital 
Library, in co-operation with the CERN 
Scientific Information Service and the Los 
Alamos National Laboratory Research Library. The 
course director is Rick Luce, Research Library 
Director at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Target group
The course is aimed at providing knowledge 
support to academic libraries, research 
libraries, and publishers in the current 
transitional phase and to identify new roles and 
opportunities for them. The programme is 
designed for library managers, librarians, 
reference librarians, subject specialists, 
publishers and other information professionals 
in the fields of science and technology. 
Advanced libraries will mainly be addressed, 
without excluding the less technically advanced 

Learning objectives
Participants should complete the course with a 
knowledge of: 
- the current changes in the information chain, 
possible roles and opportunities for science and 
technology libraries; 
- the strategies of other (commercial and 
scholarly) players on the market; 
- the organisational and technical aspects of 
electronic self-publishing; 
- different approaches to licensing and the 
forming of consortia; 
- the experiences with integrating digital 
content in leading institutions.
Group discussions and workshops will enable 
participants to apply the new information to 
their own situation.

The following subjects will be dealt with: 
changes in the information chain; new roles of 
publishers on the Internet; the library as the 
information gateway, the library as a publisher; 
licensing options; library consortia; electronic 
pre-prints, document servers and the Open 
Archives Initiative; reference linking; and 
library case studies.
