Basma Chebani, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services and Nabila Shehabeddine, Research and Instruction Services Librarian at the AUB Libraries attended and presented during the the MELCom 40th annual conference held from the 19th till the 21st of June, 2018.

Hosted by the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, the event was a three-day annual conference that included scientific communications and visits to local libraries and/or museums as well as to institutions of interest to the MI community. The meetings are held in a different country every year, alternating Europe and the MENA region.

Chebani’s presentation was about the contribution of OCLC, LC and IFLA in the structuring of bibliographic data and authorities to be part of Linked Data for more visibility on the Web and included examples from the AUB Library experience. The presentation shows the experience of the American University of Beirut in applying the best practices proposed by the Library of Congress and the PCC Task Team for URIs in MARC records as a step ahead for Linked Data.

Shehabeddine’s presentation, on the other hand, was entitled “Copyright and intellectual property; copyright and fair use: Lebanon as a case study”.

The University Libraries have published a research guide for copyright, which provides information and resources on copyright law in Lebanon and how it relates to academic activities such as research, teaching, and publication. You can access the guide here.

As an active member of the AMICAL consortium, the University Libraries was represented by Fatmeh Charafeddine, Head of Research and Instruction Services Department at the AMICAL 2018 conference, from 4 to 7 May, 2018 at the American University of Central Asia, marking AMICAL’s 15th annual meeting and conference.

The conference panels focused on the future of education at international liberal arts institutions after the major changes, which have altered the ways students and faculty members acquire, use, create and share information and scholarship. AMICAL members engaged with each other and with invited experts to discuss those issues, and many other questions related to libraries, technology and learning at academic institutions.

Invited speakers John Traxler, Professor of Digital Learning, Gina Siesing, Chief Information Officer and Constance A. Jones, Director of Libraries described, each from their own experience, the shift to digital collections, services and teaching methods.

Dalal Rahme, Data Services Librarian at the University Libraries and Najla Jarkas, faculty member at the English Department, gave a two-day pre-conference workshop on several tools for digital humanities. Rahme also gave two Data Management workshops during the conference.
