The Secretariat for the European Coordination Committee on Human Rights Documentation (ECCHRD), in collaboration with the Open Society Archives (OSA) and HURIDOCS, announced its invitation to the 32nd meeting of the ECCHRD.
The ECCHRD is the European network within the HURIDOCS global network of documentalists and librarians of human rights organizations. The aim of this network is to improve access and dissemination of public information on human rights through more effective, appropriate and compatible methods and techniques of information handling.
The meeting brings together persons working on documentation, information, and communication within human rights organizations and institutions and is used to discuss human rights documentation issues such as developing standards in human rights documentation and the usage of new information technologies in the human rights documentation context. The meeting aims to build and strengthen the cooperation among European human rights documentation institutions.
This year, the OSA will be hosting the meeting in Budapest, Hungary on May 30-31. A major topic this year is open source library management systems. See the list of systems compiled by Daniel D’Esposito of HURIDOCS here.
