The open lecture with Romulo Enmark 17 April is cancelled.
Romulo Enmark was head of the Swedish School of Library and Information Science from 1993 to 1997. Thereafter, he was the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Borås. After his years at the University of Borås, he continued his academic career as Vice-Chancellor at Halmstad University and the Swedish Defence University.
During his time as Head of the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, Romulo Enmark’s crucial efforts developed an educational environment that had long been a vocational training environment into the strong and internationally distinguished academic education and training research environment it is today.
Through his dynamic leadership, professorships were created, an internationally leading research centre in cultural policy research was founded, and a doctoral education programme in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg was founded.
Appointment of an honorary doctor is an expression of the university's appreciation of an individual's very distinguished contributions to the university. Romulo Enmark will be awarded the title of Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in the field of Library and Information Science.
