Študentje bibliotekarstva, pišite, objavljajte!

Pogosto slišimo razprave o dveh plateh medalje – da študentje bibliotekarstva premalo pišejo in objavljajo, ali pa, da tudi tisti, ki pišejo, težko pridejo do objave svojega izdelka. Ponuja se prilika, da tisti, ki vas pisanje veseli in vam "leži", objavite svoj članek v prominentni bibliotekarski reviji, pa še za nagrado se lahko potegujete. Profesor Ian Johnson, eden od urednikov revije Libri: International Journal of Libraries and Information Services, nas je zaprosil, da seznanimo študente bibliotekarstva z razpisom za najboljši študentski članek. Besedilo z veseljem objavljamo in ga puščamo v izvirnem jeziku. Želimo vam mnogo uspeha!
