17:15 Colloquium by ETH Library
At ETH Library's new 17:15 Colloquium, speakers from Switzerland and abroad give brief talks on topics from their fields. The colloquium offers a platform for further education and discussion on the subject matter presented, and ample opportunity for networking at the subsequent drinks reception. It takes place three times a semester at 17:15 on the last Thursday of the month and is geared towards colleagues from the library, archiving, collections and museum sector, as well as interested members of the public.
Dates for the first three 17:15 colloquia
- Fully booked. 22 February 2018 – Questioning copyright (Andreas von Gunten): what are the consequences of copyright for our society and what might a society without copyright be like?
- 22 March 2018 – Visualising and reading texts: linguistic reading in the digital age and the role of libraries (Noah Bubenhofer): the reflections on the role of visualisations in linguistics within the scope of the project Visual Linguistics spark ideas on what roles libraries might take on in the future.
- 26 April 2018 – Could I, should I, must I? Contradictory environment behaviour settings in libraries (Eva-Christina Edinger): environment behaviour settings describe environmental situations based on the assumption that the urban environment leads us to behave in a certain way. In library interior design, endeavours are made to take advantage of these. Results from a seven-year field study.
