This is to inform you that this month, we have planned to interview both candidates to the masters studies in digital library management (Thursday 6th of August) that have been preselected and potential doctoral students (application deadline on Thursday 6th, interview the week after). Colleagues from SSLIS are in the country for these admissions. Both in library and information science.
At the same time, a team from BTH will be here and, together with a team representing the UR libraries, work on availing e-resources that are there, but not accessible everywhere. UR librarians and colleagues will continue the process.
In order for the sub programme to be fully harmonized, an assessment has been done. It will lead to the process of choosing one common integrated library system. This issue, and others, will be discussed at a meeting in Kigali on Wednesday 12th of August. This meeting assembles the directors of library services of the respective campuses. These directors form a team, that will work with the UR-Sweden team leader and communicate and share the programme content and activities with the colleagues at the respective campuses. They will also have regular Skype meetings with the Swedish team leader(s).
More updates to follow.
