Aid, cooperation and security in vulnerable states and areas of conflict: NorDoc 2016

NorDoc is an informal group of Nordic libraries working within the field of development studies/international relations. The libraries are affiliated to aid organizations, research institutes, universities and NGOs. Annual meetings rotate between the Nordic countries (except Iceland) and constitute a platform for exchanging experiences and building competence at the interface of information management and the institutions’ fields of specialization.

This year’s NorDoc meeting was co-arranged by the libraries at NMBU, Norad and NUPI, and took place in Norad’s new premises in Bygdøy Allé 2 on 17-18 October. In addition to core members of the NorDoc group, there were Norad staff listening in to many of the presentations, and discussions were lively.
