Two Librarians from the AUB Libraries attended and presented at the MELCom 2018 in Budapest

​​Basma Chebani, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services and Nabila Shehabeddine, Research and Instruction Services Librarian at the AUB Libraries attended and presented during the the MELCom 40th annual conference held from the 19th till the 21st of June, 2018.

Hosted by the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, the event was a three-day annual conference that included scientific communications and visits to local libraries and/or museums as well as to institutions of interest to the MI community. The meetings are held in a different country every year, alternating Europe and the MENA region.

Chebani’s presentation was about the contribution of OCLC, LC and IFLA in the structuring of bibliographic data and authorities to be part of Linked Data for more visibility on the Web and included examples from the AUB Library experience. The presentation shows the experience of the American University of Beirut in applying the best practices proposed by the Library of Congress and the PCC Task Team for URIs in MARC records as a step ahead for Linked Data.

Shehabeddine’s presentation, on the other hand, was entitled “Copyright and intellectual property; copyright and fair use: Lebanon as a case study”.

The University Libraries have published a research guide for copyright, which provides information and resources on copyright law in Lebanon and how it relates to academic activities such as research, teaching, and publication. You can access the guide here.
