Developing a Digital Libraries Master’s Programme
MetadataShow full item record
The changes in Swedish education following the Bologna requirements resulted in the first Master’s programmes in Library and Information Science. Two of them target information professionals working with digital resources and services and seeking to develop and update their knowledge. One programme is oriented to foreign students from all over the world, another to Swedish students. A Venn diagram illustrating the relationships among the elements of LIS was used to develop the curriculum for the international Master’s programmes in Digital Libraries and Information Services. As this programme is delivered in distance learning mode there was a need to find ways of organizing the study process and deliver the study materials so that it suited this mode of education. The poster describes the content and design of the programme, as well as student reactions.
