Second benchmarking week was spent on the two campuses of the Université catholique de Louvain in Brussels and in Louvain-la-Neuve. Both were busy, lively places with lots of students.
In Brussels we had time for interesting discussions and interviews with the library staff and for student interviews that we already reported.
In Louvain-la-Neuve there was chance to talk to the team behind the library’s fantastic marketing phenomenon Biblio-Jack. What a modern and fun way to teach students the basics about how to use the university library! Take a look at the videos in YouTube and the page in Facebook for more information.
We also learned about DIAL, the university’s institutional repository, and visited the recently opened new library and learning center for science and technology.
