Honors and the iSchool Netherlands Study Abroad Information Session

January 8, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Netherlands (iSchool & Honors) Dutch Designs: Innovation in Library, Museum, and Information Services in the Netherlands

Dates: June 21 – July 18, 2020 | 6 credits graduate/10 credits undergraduate (summer only – no spring seminar)

Meet professionals from Dutch academic, research, and cultural organizations, while exploring Amsterdam, Delft, Rotterdam, and other points of interest in the Netherlands. How do libraries, museums, and information services engage with diverse populations in everyday operations and in attempts at innovative programs? Guided visits through world-famous (and totally esoteric) museums, libraries and historical sites blend with playful outings, readings and class discussions. You’ll delve into the evolution of cultural heritage institutions abroad and in the U.S., with special focus on how this sector addresses contemporary social problems.

Open to undergraduate students from any major and all iSchool students, including those in the MLIS and MSIM programs, as well as museology masters program students. No prerequisites and there will be a mandatory single-day orientation session vs. for-credit prep seminar. English speakers will have no trouble navigating this program nor host country.
