Sightseeing and wonder in Prague! Malia talked about the course which gave her 3 credits. If you subscribe through the LIS-listserv, there is usually a call out by Chapel Hill on these seminars. They are open to all library students, librarians, and library technicians. Concurrently the program is held at Prague and London.
There were 7 students with 5 professors taking them around. Malia and co. were able to tour 14 libraries in 10 days! 2 days included lectures and 3 day trips to special libraries in: Kromeriz, Liberec, Cesky Krumlov
Interestingly, digitization is getting big after a flood in Prague so books from a particular library the group visited were shipped to Germany to be scanned.
Thank you Malia for showing us your experience in Prague! A great opportunity for anyone so be sure to be on the lookout when the seminar comes out next year!
