Would you like to spend two weeks in England learning about the history and future challenges of librarianship? How about if those two weeks were spent at The University of Oxford with sessions held at the historic Bodleian Library, Oxford University Press, many of the university's unique college libraries, as well as the British Library in London?
Co-sponsored by The University of Oxford and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science, this two-week, residential summer program allows library professionals and graduate students to explore the past, present, and future of libraries and librarianship at one of the world's premier educational institutions.
Participants will be staying in the center of Oxford allowing them to immerse themselves in the exciting and historic university city and are free to explore England on the weekend.
More information about Oxford can be found in the Lonely Planet Guide at http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/england/oxford and on the Oxford city
