The Annual General Meeting of the German Studies Library Group takes place on Friday, 11th November 2016 in Oxford, kindly hosted by Isabel Holowaty (History Librarian, Bodleian Libraries) and Emma Huber (Subject Consultant for German, Taylor Institution Library).
If you wish to attend, please email the GSLG Secretary, Christopher Skelton-Foord as soon as possible - the deadline to let us know by has now been extended to 9th November. Attendees have the option of meeting for lunch at 12.15 pm in the King's Arms pub (opposite the Weston Library). To enable sufficient tables to be booked, please ensure you indicate too whether you are interested in gathering in the King's Arms.
Our programme for the afternoon consists of:

  • 1.30 pm till 2.05 pm: Tour of the Bodleian Libraries' Weston Library, including the Conservation Department. We meet at the Reader Entrance, Weston Library, Park Road, which is opposite the King's Arms.
  • 2.15 pm: 'Creative Multilingualism - How Can Libraries Help to Create an Impact?' - Professor Katrin Kohl (Jesus College, Oxford). Bahari Room, Weston Library.

There is also a launch of music videos relating to the Reformation 2017 celebrations in the Taylorian Library from 5pm the same day, which may be interest to GSLG members. Whilst this is not part of our GSLG programme for the afternoon, it is expected that it will be along the lines of a wine reception with a performance of Reformation music by the Oxford Bach Soloists, and it may be of interest to those attending our GSLG event.
