A Librarian’s Tour of the Czech Republic, Part 1

In a previous post, I talked about my passion for library buildings and how I visit libraries while on vacation. This past May, I took a step further and participated in the Prague Summer Seminar, a two week trip sponsored by the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science and the Institute of Information Studies and Librarianship at Charles University in Prague. One word to describe this trip: amazing!
