Humboldt University Berlin
The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in Germany. The School of Library and Information Science of the Humboldt University (B-SLIS/IBI) is the oldest school of library science in Germany, the only library school at a research university, and the only German institution with the right to give a doctorate in library and information science. Our aims are to prepare students to take information management positions within companies and public institutions, to ensure that students have an understanding of computer and social science methods as well as of humanities disciplines that allows them to understand and contribute to research and development. Another important aim is to engage internationally in teaching and research and to build a research and teaching program that creates a distinctive Humboldt perspective and a practical set of tools for addressing the changing needs of the world of information. Currently the HU Berlin is involved in the Europeanav1.0 thematic network with numerous partners from European Libraries, Archives and Museum, in its partner project EuropeanaConnect for developing Etechnical Europeana components as well as in the FP7-SSH funded EERQI project (DG Research).
