Join us for a unique film screening in connection with the Bibliotheca exhibition at OSA Archivum, exploring the idea of libraries as special, almost spiritual places through short films about library design.
CEU librarians will give a presentation at OSA on academic research tools, including open source and subscribed resources. The aim is to demonstrate how open sources can work together with subscribed scholarly databases and web scale discovery services to facilitate teaching, learning and research.
The "Bibliotheca" exhibition aims to engage the CEU community in a discussion about the future library by providing a visual, conceptual and experimental platform of inquiry into the spatial, infrastructural, technological, and practical conditions of academic knowledge production.
The program will present some of the most important and popular releases made in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan in the last five years.
