29 Mar 29.03 All Digital Weeks 2022 : BIBLIO – exchanging ideas on transforming libraries in the digital age
29 Mar, 2022
The aim of the event is to present the BIBLIO project and its approach to boosting digital skills and competences for librarians in Europe. We will present the specialisation course, focusing on the modular approach of the curriculum and how we assess prior competences and existing experience, so learners can adjust their learning path. The course is aligned with two European frameworks – DigComp and EntreComp, and we will also explain how the certification process.
The second half of the event will be dedicated to exchanging ideas among the participants on concrete projects for the digital transformation of libraries. This session will also serve as inspiration for the participants in the BIBLIO Specialisation course, who will start their apprenticeships in libraries across Europe during the Summer.

When participants of non-formal education programs finish the learning process, it is necessary to understand their level of skills. It is very useful for both trainers and participants.

Italy: Davide Sgaramella
Project idea: Davide Sgaramella is a technical collaborator of the spin-Off D.A.BI.MUS. s.r.l., University of Bari Aldo Moro, specialised in digitising books, papers, and cultural resources. Davide mainly deals with 3D graphics, training, and designing applications for interaction with cultural heritage.
Davide believes that the matching between analogue cultural goods and digital is fundamental to ensure sustainability over time to the cultural resources. He also believes that disseminating them to other people is the key to encouraging the search for the latest innovations digitally and interactively. Davide successfully completed High School in Informatics – Project ABACUS at the State Industrial Technical Institute “Galileo Ferraris” of Molfetta in the province of Bari in 2013. He then obtained a Higher Technician diploma to promote and enhance digital and experiential cultural tourism – Communication Management 4.0. He participates in the SilvHER Project (Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Values and Heritage), co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.Although librarianship is not his field of work, recently, Davide became interested in the BIBLIO project, completing the MOOCs, and now he has decided to specialise as a CECO professional following the blended courses.
