Facilities

The Ionian University’s recent building houses the Department of Archives and
Library Science (second floor, address: 72 Ioannou Theotoki Street). Its
contemporary premises include four specially designed lecture halls, teaching staff
offices, the Secretariat, two computer and three research and teaching
laboratories. In addition, two ground-floor amphitheaters are offered for university
lectures.
The computer laboratories are fully equipped with workstations, printers, scanners
and modern equipment. Moreover, access is provided to the University's network
as well as to a number of additional services (e.g. access to the Internet, the digital
services of the Hellenic Academic Libraries’ union, Heal-link etc.). The
aforementioned laboratories are operated and supervised by the Department’s
specialized scientific staff.

Professional opportunities and prospects

There are approximately 300 active graduate and 75 postgraduate students at the
Department of Archives, Library Science and Museology as well as about 60 PhD
students. In the current socioeconomic reality, proper information organization,
evaluation and use at all levels are necessary for the development of any activity.
Over the past years, the enlargement of the role played by organizations’ managing

                                          5
collective memory, combined with the wide application of digital technologies in
Greece and abroad, has led to a dramatic increase in the subjects taught at the
Department, namely Archives and Library Science, Museology and Information
Science in general. As a consequence, there is a respective increase in the demand
for such specialized scientists by archives, libraries, museums, publishing houses,
information centers etc., both in the public and the private sector, rendering our
Department graduates’ professional prospects quite favorable.
Our students are trained in the organization, classification, search, evaluation and
presentation of all types of documents in conventional and/or digital form,
including printed and electronic publications, corporate archives, papyri,
audiovisual documents, legal texts and entertainment material, thus covering
quite an extensive range of specialties that are useful to a large number of
organizations and companies. As a result, the Department of Archives, Library
Science and Museology graduates may be employed in state and private archives,
publishing houses, as well as in libraries of all types (state, private, academic,
specialized, school libraries etc.).
Finally, they can be employed by museums for museum collections’ management
and presentation. Some examples of potential employers include The State
Archives and other Archives (of Universities, banks, organizations, courts of law,
ministries and government agencies, companies, etc.), various libraries (The
National Library, The Hellenic Parliament Library, university, municipal, ministry,
hospital, bank and other organization libraries) as well as in documentation and
information centers and as self-employed consultants in the field of library
organization and information services.
