Learning objectives

The course aims to provide students with adequate knowledge about the elements
that characterize the library science and the bibliography with particular attention to the organization of libraries in Italy and the development of technologies for document processing.

(knowledge and understanding)
The course will introduce students to a critical understanding of the issues and technologies related to the library world. This knowledge will be achieved and supported with lectures, seminars, conferences, study visits, and will be screened with oral examinations.

(applying knowledge and understanding)
The study of methodologies and the techniques of library organization will produce an understanding of the structure and content of document management. This knowledge will offer document processing skills appropriate to library orientation and bibliographic instruction.

(making judgements)
At the end of the course the students, based on the analytical knowledge of both theoretical and technical system, should have acquired the ability to understand the library management issues as well as to learn the fundamental knowledge for bibliographic management.

(communication skills)
At the end of the course, students should have achieved the ability to communicate clearly and to use the appropriate technical vocabulary related to the issues of the course.

(learning skills)
