Don't miss an exciting opportunity to study abroad this summer! Combine
a trip to Europe with earning  3 hours of academic credit that can be
transferred from the School of Information and Library Science at UNC.
Registration is open until March 1st, 2009 and there are only a few
spots left so register soon! 

In partnership with the University of Oxford and led by a faculty member
from UNC and experts from the Bodleian Library, the two week seminar in
Oxford provides an overview of the history and future of British
librarianship. You will live in one of the colleges at Oxford and will
tour the famous libraries, museums, and archives of Oxford and enjoy
talks and discussions with some of the world's foremost experts on
librarianship in Great Britain. Although the program is centered in
Oxford, participants also visit the British Library in London and have
opportunities for additional travel in England. The seminar will take
place May 17-30th. Visit our Web site at
<http://sils.unc.edu/programs/international/oxford.html>  for more
information on the seminar and how to register. 

The seminar in Prague is organized in partnership with Charles
University and provides an overview of librarianship in the Czech
Republic. In addition to visiting many sites in Prague, you will also
take trips to see castles, monasteries and historic sites throughout the
Czech Republic. With a Communist controlled past that limited public
access to information, the Czech Republic is now committed to wider
access to books and information. This rich and varied history that
stretches back thousands of years, makes Prague a fascinating place to
explore librarianship and the place of information in a changing
culture. The seminar will take place May 24th -June 6th. Visit our Web
site at http://sils.unc.edu/programs/international/prague.html

is stronger than it has been in many years so it is a great time to
travel to Europe!
