  • A Pilot Experience in the External Assessment of International Relations in Higher Education
    With higher education undergoing a process of adaptation to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the internationalization of activities in European universities is gaining importance. The last communiqué from the conference of European Ministers Responsible for Higher Education in Lovaina, that took place on 28 and 29 April 2009, prioritises, amongst others factors, the increase of internationalization of higher education institutions in general and the mobility of students, researchers and support personnel. In fact, this communiqué states that by 2020 at least 20% of graduates in the EHEA will spend a study period abroad.

  • A step forward: from the physical to the digital library
    The new models for working with and producing information, influenced by a spectacular increase in electronic documentation and in digital publication and dissemination media, are causing organisations to undertake initiatives addressed to the management of documentary resources beyond the traditional library. In recent months, AQU Catalunya has been preparing a repository of specialised electronic documents dealing with university quality which we have called the Digital Library. AQU Catalunya's Digital Library is integrated into the Agency's website and offers open access to the full text of all its documents.
