Library usage is a nuanced experience, intricately intertwined with the life situations of its users. Rarely confined to either the digital or analogue realm and solely about the social experience or completely disconnected from interactions with staff or other library users. Seismonaut will demonstrate this point through two distinct projects. The first involves an international literary review on the utilisation of digital collections, while the second delves into the impact analysis of library experiences.

Speakers: Nicklas Hilding Andersen, Chief Advisor, Seismonaut. Andreas Bonde Hansen, Chief Advisor, Seismonaut.

"The Network Colonial Contexts (Network for Sustainable Research Structures for the Processing of Collections from Colonial Contexts) addresses issues of digital aggregation, editing, and visibility, as well as accessibility and uses of digital materials and data from colonial contexts. A central working group within the network is concerned with the question of making the collections adequately accessible via vocabulary development. The working group aims to obtain an oversight of available vocabularies, to connect them and to debate questions of ethics when it comes to the naming of cultural groups in particular."

Speakers: Moritz Strickert, Cultural anthropologist/sociologist and academic librarian, University Library of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Speakers: Knut Skansen, Director, Deichman Biblo Tøyen, Oslo.
