The 106th Deutscher Bibliothekartag will be held in Frankfurt am Main from 30 May to 2 June 2017. The congress is being organised by the associations Verein Deutscher Bibliothekarinnen und Bibliothekare e.V. (VDB) and Berufsverband Information Bibliothek e.V. (BIB). In 2017, the theme of the congress, the largest further training event for library science in Germany and Europe, will be ‘Media – People – Markets’.
As in previous years, the 2017 congress will include a poster session and invited sessions – events run by speakers invited by VDB and BIB. The clip presentations that were included in the BID congress in Leipzig for the first time in 2016 will also be part of the Deutscher Bibliothekartag in Frankfurt. A new addition to the programme this year will be the hands-on labs – open space learning sessions that enable participants to gain direct practical experience.
