Digital Textbook Presentations > Parma, Italy > September 2012

In late September 2012, I had the opportunity to offer a three-hour workshop to students enrolled in the Digital Library Learning (DILL) program at the University of Parma, Italy.

DILL is a two-year international master for elite information professionals to provide them with the skills and competencies to navigate the rapidly evolving world of digital libraries. It is offered in cooperation between Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (Norway), Tallinn University (Estonia), and the University of Parma (Italy).

DILL is a Master Programme under the European Union's Erasmus Mundus Programme.

I wish to thank Anna Maria Tammaro, Professor at University of Parma and Coordinator, International Master DILL Digital Library Learning, and Elisabetta Longhi, University of Parma, Tutor, International Master DILL Digital Library Learning, for their kindness and hospitality.

I am most grateful for the generous financial support provided by Erasmus Mundus Programme that enabled me to present.
