Mooc on the dynamics of knowledge organisation

Pericles, a European Union financed research project intending to find sustainable ways of making digital material accessible (given that technology and language change over time), has, in addition to research results, teaching, a doctoral course and reports, resulted in the development of several training modules and one mooc  (massive open online course). Teachers at the University of Borås and other institutions are behind the mooc Dynamics of knowledge organisation, that you can enroll to should it be of interest to you.

University of Rwanda -- Sweden cooperation film

In order to understand our cooperation and its aims, it might be helpful to watch the film that has been produced on the UR-Sweden Programme for Research, Higher Education and Institutional Advancement. Please take some time to watch the short trailer or the longer film.

UR Library Services' website

The peak of the website workshop at the University of Rwanda in February, was the official pre-launch of the UR Library services' website. This website will be the central website for all college libraries and for all services and for tools and resources shared all over the University of Rwanda. Thus, this is where you will find the shared catalogue and the digital repository (both upcoming), but where you will also find information on specific libraries, research and student support, as well as guidelines and tools in areas such as academic writing, referencing and antiplagiarism.

The website is still under construction, but the gives insight into the objectives and aims of the modern research library that we are in the process of building up together. This has been a process of great involvement from all partners and the happiness and satisfaction that we all felt at the pre-launch was evident to everybody who attended, including the Vice Chancellor and two Deputy Vice Chancellors.
