The Intensive Program ‘Library, Information and Cultural Management – Academic Summer School’ (IP LibCMASS) aims to create interdisciplinary educational program and learning environment in which to acquire the knowledge and skills relating to the contemporary challenges of the management of libraries, museums, archives and information technology centers. The target groups are students (Bachelor, Master and PhD) in library and computer sciences, information technology and cultural and historical heritage of State University of Library Studies and Information Technologies (SULSIT, Sofia), Hacettepe University in Ankara (Turkey), University of Zagreb (Croatia) and IUT Université Paris Descartes (France). The total number of students is 25, teachers – 19.
The mission of the project is through using a rich methodological toolkit to implement a modern educational process aimed at implementation of interdisciplinary knowledge and skills relevant to the new requirements in the career development of students in library and information and cultural sector and the policy response to higher education and the European Union initiative on "New skills for new jobs”.

The theoretical material assimilates through a variety of teaching methods (workshops, seminars, individual assignments and Case Study in cultural institutions). We share national experiences and best practices, we interact in national and international teams, and we stimulate the intercultural dialogue and foreign language communication in English. Project management
and communication between teacher-student are based on own website:
