The venue is the Sighthill campus of Edinburgh Napier University, which has good transport links to the rest of the city by tram, bus and train.
The event is being run in collaboration with two leading academics from the Department of Archive and Library Science at Ionian University, Corfu in Greece: Dr Petros Kostagiolas and Dr Christina Banou.
