Nordic IUG 2012 Espoo

Meeting Website

Espoo City Library, in the west of Helsinki area, will be hosting the next Nordic IUG meeting in October 2012. We are planning a two days meeting and a pre-meeting day.

The preliminary schedule is:
Tuesday 9th October, Pre-meeting
- Innovative presentations for library representatives (the Council of Public Libraries)
- there will be library directors and staff members from non-Millennium Finnish libraries
- you are welcome to join the event
Wednesday 10th October, Nordic IUG meeting first day
- Innovative presentations, library news, presentations, discussions etc.
Thursday 11th October, Nordic IUG meeting second day
- library news, presentations, discussions etc.

Most likely the main location will be Sello Library in Leppävaara (one of the Espoo district centers). Sello Library is one of the liveliest libraries in HelMet consortia. It is located in Sello shopping center, so there will be restaurants, coffee shops, cinemas, hotels and other services nearby and commuter trains to Helsinki main railway station.

Please save the dates! We will send you more information later.
