DigiHUBB is proud to invite European scholars of Digital Humanities to the 1st Easter European competition organized in Romania dedicated to showcasing ongoing projects and research in domains pertaining to this vas field.


4 of the most deserving projects will be selected and awarded a 200 Euro scholarship on behalf of DARIAH, which will be used to cover the participant’s travels and stay in Cluj-Napoca. In order to qualify for this prize, the research does not have to follow any particular topic, in fact, the more diverse the better – as long as it falls in the broad category of the Digital Humanities. In addition, any resulting papers will be published in the Centre’s own journal Studia Digitalia.

We are pleased to announce that the United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available and can be accessed globally free of charge.  A result of the successful collaboration between the Dag Hammarskjöld Library (DHL) at UN Headquarters and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform uses innovative open source technology to provide access to UN-produced materials in digital format. Content will be added continuously and enhancements to the system will be rolled out on a regular basis. The new system, which offers easy access to UN documents, maps, speeches, voting data, as well as non-sales publications, will help global researchers find the UN information they need, quickly and accurately. It provides one point of access to UN information – current and historical.

Phase 1 of the UNDL incorporates digital content from the databases in UNBISnet and the Official Document System (ODS) - mainly official UN documents, speech and voting records, as well as some maps.  The UNDL will also link to open access UN content.

ANKOS prepared

In the previous four years, with its academic quality, profile of its participants, as well as its setting as an exhibition, ANKOSLink Conference has become the largest library event in the country and in the region. If we look at the numbers, ANKOSLink has succeeded in fashioning itself as a brand born out of libraries, with more than 550 participants and close to 60 firms. It continues to be the right address not only for libraries and librarians, but also for information professionals of all levels, from administrators to students.

openaccesslogoWith great satisfaction we inform you that Open Access became in Romania the main „access to knowledge” as the brand new National Strategy for Research, Development and Innovation promoted it. The last cycle of policies in research, development and innovation has finished and a new period opened spanning until 2020. The new document was approved in Bucharest on 21st of October and ratified by the Romanian Government on 28th.
The new Strategy is aligned with the European policies - Innovation Union and takes traits of the new Horizon 2020 financing instrument.

Taking a look at the country profile put by the DG Research in the Research and Innovation performance in the EU Innovation Union progress at country level brings some realities concerning the valorisation of the research in terms of presence:

the share of national scientific publications in the top 10 % most-cited publications worldwide has declined slightly in recent years.
Overall, the number of international co-publications with other European countries is the lowest in Europe, suggesting that Romania does not benefit sufficiently from the international knowledge flows favoured by the ERA architecture.[...]
Demand for knowledge is weak and there is an underdeveloped innovation culture.

TheDayWeFightBackFeb11 2014Increased Internet censorship and surveillance has been an emerging trend over the last decade. Since 2013’s leaks regarding online spying by various security agencies, the global dimensions and potential of ubiquitous surveillance have become evident to the global public. The IFLA FAIFE Committee has been actively working for many years to raise the issue of privacy and surveillance in a library context and now highlights some initiatives to support citizens’ rights.
