This site gives you an overview of a broad range of special, educational, social, advertising and other events organised by a variety of subjects in the Czech Republic and abroad. There are listed events organised by libraries of different type, size and orientation, by professional associations (SKIP, SDRUK), schools, collaborating companies, and other organisers. You will find here training courses, workshops and conferences related to library - information profession and exhibitions including fairs bearing on this profession. Educational activities of a newly established SKIP Education Section, which took over the activities started and developed by the MOLIN Training Center, make a significant part of this overwiev as well.

Since 2002 it is SKIP (Association of Library and Information Professionals of Czech Republic) who administers the Overview so far located on the website of the National Library of the Czech Republic. SKIP will aim at the highest achievable completeness of this overview, but it is up to organisers of individual events how perfect and complex the Overview will be. Towards this goal the website contains the web form (in Czech version only) allowing organisers to enter and maintain the events themselves via Web.

The level of detail depends on data supplied by the organiser. Each record, however, contains mandatory data: title of event in Czech and English, type of event, its target audience (library type, professional orientation and skills level), location, region and date of event and all contact data (organising institution, contact person, and connection). A number of events contain, however, much detailed description (capacity, price, schedule etc.). Some events may lack an exact venue date, which should be set down additionally.

The overview is not definitive, it is possible to add other interesting events at any time. The organisers can elaborate and complete it gradually. Therefore, we recommend to bookmark it and skim it regularly besides other library periodicals, electronic conferences, and other information sources which can inform of additions and changes. We also invite all organisers to announce all essential changes continuously so that to maintain a truly up-to-date overview of events. To submit any change the web form can be invoked from a detailed view of the event record (again in Czech version only). It is obviously also possible to cancel an event with two options: either to mark the event as cancelled and retain it in the Overview or to remove it from the list completely.

The Overview will be as good as we will make it
