[InetBib] "Copyright in the Digital Age" at DDB on October 4, 2005

Dear colleagues:

Over the past years, Information Resource Center (IRC) staff of the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt have successfully established the concept of "Librarians' Roundtables", bringing together American library experts with German information professionals throughout the Rhein-Main region.  

Our speakers included representatives of the New York Public Library, Harvard University Library, Yale University Library and the Library of Congress, covering topics like "the Role of the Library in a Community", "Fund Raising", "QuestionPoint", "Digital Archiving/ Digital Library Projects" as well as "Youth Outreach at American Libraries". 

These roundtables offer an excellent opportunity not only to discuss professional challenges and concerns with American experts but also to network with German colleagues in this region.

We are very grateful for the support from institutions like Die Deutsche Bibliothek, Frankfurt University Library, Stadtbücherei Frankfurt and Landesbibliothekszentrum Rheinland-Pfalz that often host and co-sponsor our events.

Please join us for another roundtable discussion (in English), featuring  

Ms. Marybeth Peters
