Second training addressed to librarians (Turkey)

The MEF University Library in Istanbul (Turkey) hosted the second in-presence HERMES training for librarians on January 18th 2023. It has been a precious occasion for the HERMES team to meet many Turkish colleagues who came from different organizations and to present some video contributions sent by RSCVD volunteers around the world.

The training covered themes connected with our daily activity as librarians specialized in digital resource sharing as for example the RSCVD initiative, resource discovery, open access, the new Talaria software.

Here is the program for the day:
