Call for Video Clips and Poster – Deutscher Bibliothekartag Hanover 2020

From 26 to 29 May 2020 the 109th Deutscher Bibliothekartag will take place in Hanover. As in previous years, there will again be the opportunity to present specialist contributions in the form of posters and video clips.

The submitted posters and clips will be reviewed and selected according to formal and content criteria. In the evaluation of the submissions we are guided by the following criteria:
– Innovative character
The organisers welcome innovative contributions with a future impact.
– Practical relevance
As organisers, we attach great importance to the participants learning things that are model-like and relevant for professional practice. In reports from ongoing projects, it is expected that not only project goals are reported, but above all project results and implementation problems.
– Networking character
The evaluation takes particular account of submissions that encourage cross-disciplinary thinking and the acquisition of skills beyond existing professional boundaries.
– Creative ideas and technical implementation
Presentation and implementation should be in line with the content to be conveyed. A creative approach to the topic and the appropriate use of the available resources are expected.
The best clip and the best poster will be awarded at the closing event on 29 May in Hanover.
Equivalent to the lectures, the clips and posters will be archived on the BIB OPUS publication server following the 109th Deutscher Bibliothekartag.
