My Work Experience in Bangor Library & Archives

By Lukas Zach, from the Medical University of Vienna
I am currently attending a course on librarianship at Austria’s National Library and thus have to do a work experience at another library than the Medical University’s. I decided to apply in Bangor for several reasons. First, I studied Celtic Studies at the University in Vienna and wrote my master’s thesis on two middle-welsh texts from the 14th century, and second, because I’ve always wanted to do some work abroad, see how other libraries work, which IT-systems they use and so on.
