The ABEI (Association of Italian Ecclesiastical Librarians), the Pontifical Gregorian University and the National Office for Ecclesiastical Cultural Heritage and Housing of Worship of the CEI, organize the training course "IL BIBLIOTECARIO ECCLESIASTICO".
The proposal is divided into four training modules dealing with the professional topics that interest all those who work in various capacities within ecclesiastical libraries and religious institutes, offices and structures of reference. The course is also open to those who wish to be formed with a view to future collaboration with ecclesiastical cultural institutions. The aim was to respond to a need for training expressed by the territory and accepted with keen interest and spirit of service by the proposing partners.
The sessions will be held in Rome at the Pontifical Gregorian University.
The proposal is intended to provide an all-round training opportunity but can also be attended for each individual module.
Calendar of modules:
- Module 01. L'ordinamento Ecclesiastico Friday 11 - Saturday 12, October 2019
- Module 02. La biblioteca conserva sicura Friday 21 – Saturday 22, February 2020
- Module 03. La biblioteca back-office Friday 15 - Saturday 16, May 2020
- Module 04. La biblioteca front-office Friday 25 - Saturday 26, September 2020
The objective of the course, which is also configured as a service to the Church and its cultural institutions, is to transmit shared formative experiences, to allow professionals and operators to obtain the necessary updates and to introduce the younger generations to the ecclesiastical library world, communicating the cultural, identity and pastoral value of the ecclesiastical library heritage.
