For the first time, the Fiesole Retreat travels to Greece, where we will explore the current state of learning and scholarship in the age of digital initiatives, with the background of our shared rich cultural heritage. We extend our thanks to the National Library of Greece who will serve as our co-host and will welcome us to their beautiful new facility inside the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens.

This year, our Pre-Retreat Preconference on Tuesday, April 7, will focus on Greek initiatives highlighting the creativity and forward thinking of our host country. Our full day session on Wednesday, April 8, will begin with a discussion of Cultural Heritage and the Challenges and Opportunities presented by new and emerging approaches. Following lunch, we will examine Copyright and specifically how initiatives in the EU are affecting all of us. The final half-day session on Thursday, April 9, will address Open Access Monographs, Digital Humanities and Research Outputs in search of mutual understandings of opportunities for the scholarly enterprise.

Join us for the 22nd in this series of important discussions about the future of libraries, publishing, and collections. The Fiesole Retreat Series offers a unique opportunity to interact with a select group of your colleagues in a relaxed and thoughtful setting.
