Digital Textbook Presentations > Belgrade, Serbia > September 2012


In late September 2012, I also had opportunities to present at various venues in Belgrade, Serbia.

The first was prepared for presentation at 11th Conference New Technologies and Standards: Digitization of National Heritage.  However, due to the cancellation of my flight from Vienna, where I had a long layover on my way from Milan, I was not able to deliver it.

McKiernan, Gerry. “Open Access Textbooks: A Survey of Major Initiatives.” Presentation prepared for XI New Technologies and Standards: Digitization of National Heritage 2012Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, Serbia, September 21, 2012.

Fortunately, I was able to re-book my flight to arrive in Belgrade to give a scheduled presentation at the University of Belgrade library.
