Proposals to be submitted by 12 January 2015
The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) will be hosting the 36th Annual IATUL Conference 2015 of the International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) with the title “Strategic Partnerships for Access and Discovery” in Hannover from 5 to 9 July 2015. The conference language will be English.
Following the call for papers and posters, proposals to the 36th Annual IATUL Conference 2015 can be submitted any time between now and 12 January 2015 on the following topics:
• Library Strategy and Management (Methods of strategic planning and steering)
• Strategic Partnerships (International and national networks and alliances for improving library services)
• Changing Environment for Librarians (In between new types of publication, access options and discovery tools – challenges and solutions)
• Open Science/Science 2.0 (Enabling networked web-based scientific collaboration)
• Management of Research Data (New approaches and best practices for data repositories)
• Non-textual Information (Novel ways to provide added value while managing growing data volumes)
• Digital Preservation (Collaborative projects, service and business models, limitations in legal framework, involving researchers in curation)

In addition to the programme comprising presentations, discussions and workshops about strategy, management and practice in libraries, IATUL also offers an accompanying company exhibition. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to present their services and products to more than 200 international participants from the field of librarianship.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
