Breakout session led by Professor Gunilla Widén, Professor of Information Studies, Åbo Akademi School of Business and Economics, Finland.
Drawing on the Nordic experience, where networking across geographic boundaries is a necessity and well within the comfort zone, this session will explore a range of collaborative networks for the LIS field: for researchers, doctoral students, work and study exchanges, and communities of practice interested in particular topics such as information literacy. Discussion of the various models and an interactive exercise will highlight the opportunities and challenges of network initiatives. As well as providing the opportunity for individuals to consider their own networking practice, the outcomes of this session will inform the development of the DREaM network for the duration of the project and beyond.
