Click@platformă online de instruire pentru bibliotecari

Evaluarea finală a proiectului „Click@platformă online de instruire pentru bibliotecari”
 Piteşti 27 septembrie 2012



         A trecut deja un an de la vizita făcută de cei 15 bibliotecari români în SUA în cadrul programului Centrului Mortenson pentru Lideri şi Inovatori în bibliotecă. Drept urmare, s-a ajuns şi la raportarea finală pentru proiectul “Click@platformă online de instruire pentru bibliotecari”, proiect finanţat de EIFL şi Centrul Mortenson. 

        Astfel, cei 6 bibliotecari (Mihail Grinea, Titina Dediu, Ifrim Crina, Rotaru Valentina, Margareta Tatarus şi Mihalea Voinicu) implicaţi în proiectul “Click@platformă online de instruire pentru bibliotecari” s-au întâlnit la Piteşti cu reprezentantele Centrului Mortenson (Barbara J. Ford, Susan Schnuer, Peggy Barber) şi cu reprezentanta IREX,  Anca Rapeanu. Întâlnirea a avut loc la Biblioteca Judeţeană “Dinicu Golescu” Argeș unde am avut-o ca şi gazdă pe Mihaela Voinicu.
         Cu această ocazie am vorbit fiecare despre contribuţia pe care am avut-o în proiect, despre realizările noastre, despre sustenabilitatea proiectului, despre schimbările din  viaţa noastră profesională ca urmare a vizitei noastră în SUA, şi nu în ultimul rând, ne-am bucurat că ne-am  revăzut, am schimbat impresii şi am depănat amintiri.

Oferta acestei săptămâni este următoarea:
1) Yasmine Galenorn - Murder under a mystic moon
After psychic medium Emerald O'Brien literally stumbles across the body of her friend's best buddy, the police blame the death on a cougar attack. But Emerald senses something else wandering the forest--a killer of a more human kind. Includes a charm recipe.
2) Russell Andrews - Aphrodite 
It looked for all the world like a terrible, tragic accident. Susanna Morgan had gotten up in the middle of the night, tripped, fallen, and broken her neck. Yet when detective Justin Westwood inspects the victim's apartment, he can't help noticing that the details don't quite add up. The glass on the bedside table is knocked over but there are no cuts on her body. The scrape on her knee looks suspiciously fresh. And then a terrified witness comes forward, confirming his worst fear. This is no accident. This is murder.
 3) David Hewson - A Season for the Dead
In a hushed Vatican Reading Room, the scene is shocking: a crazed professor shot dead after brandishing evidence of a grisly crime. Moments later, two bodies are found in a nearby church, each with a gruesome calling card from their killer.
Detective Nic Costa is one of the first on the scene. A cop who barely looks his twenty-seven years, Nic soon meets a woman who will dominate both his thoughts—and his investigation. A cool, beautiful professor of early Christianity, Sara Farnese was in the Vatican Library on that fateful day, a witness to her colleague’s outburst and grotesque death.
And as more bodies are found, her role becomes even more baffling…because each victim had intimately known Sara, a woman whose history becomes more lurid and unfathomable with each revelation. Until the case takes a sudden, strange turn—and the secrets of a woman, a killer, and a city begin to unravel…with devastating consequences….
