10:00–12:30 EduAction for libraries. Competencies and motivations of a modern librarian

We would like to invite all the literary enthusiasts, librarians, and teacher-librarians to the third conference organised by Warszawski Program Edukacji Kulturalnej as part of the EduAction. It has already become a tradition that it is held at the Warsaw Book Fair.

Registration: https://eduakcjadlabibliotek.evenea.pl/

Bearing in mind that cultural education is the sum of actions shaping the human capital, preparing us for conscious participation in culture and stimulating our aesthetic sensitivity, we would like to meet on 18 May with the intention of strengthening and improving our competencies.  A modern librarian plays the role of a consultant, teacher and co-creator of classes. In order to be up to his tasks and meet the expectations of both young and adult readers, he has to be a good time manager and, most importantly, be able to make library an interesting and valuable place.

The conference will cover a reflection on personal development, working with pupils on readings, as well as current issues of the professional milieu of teacher-librarians.

We are pleased to announce the participation of Maja Branka – a coach, consultant, tutor, and supervisor – having 16 years of experience, working both with groups (conducting trainings, workshops, sessions) and individuals. For the past four years she has been involved in a strong cooperation with cultural institutions – libraries and cultural centres, as well as with municipal officials responsible for the cultural policies. She specialises in workshops related to interpersonal and social communication.

At the conference, some time will also be devoted to the new application form of the Warsaw Cultural Education Award.

15:30–16:20 What does Thema serve as? Or who does Thema serve?

Amazon in Europe, the whole British book industry, half of the national German base, the entire export of Spanish publishers to South America – three to four years ago nobody would have thought that publishers in different countries would one day use a single global multilingual book subject classification.

And yet, one simple, common, and at the same time relatively detailed subject category scheme has been approved. Perhaps, it will long be a prevailing view in Poland that every publisher and retailer needs to create his own book subject classification system. Or maybe a breakthrough will happen?

We will discuss this matter with our guests. The meeting will be hosted by Renek Mendruń, who has been attending the meetings of the International Thema Steering Committee for a number of years on behalf of the National Library of Poland.

Presentation of the Polish translation of Peter Oliver Loew’s book “Wir Deutschen. Geschichte der Polen in Deutschland” (München: C.H. Beck 2014). The interview with the author will be conducted by the Director of the German Historical Institute (NIH), Professor Miloš Řezník.

The author presents the history of Poles in Germany, discussing Polish immigration and the historical Polish minorities in Germany, from the Middle Ages to the present. Today the Polish community – the second largest minority group in Germany – is highly diverse. It includes displaced people who no longer acknowledge any Polish identity but speak Polish at home, often the Silesian dialect. There are those who want to integrate with the German society as quickly as possible and those who try to remain Polish. There are people who emigrated for economic or political reasons – some of them have Polish citizenship and some have German citizenship. Furthermore, every year Germany hosts hundreds of thousands of Polish seasonal workers. At the same time, Germany is inhabited by the descendants of those who ended up there because of World War II and even of economic migrants from the pre-war period.
