The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) provides you with the common fundamentals and methods in the fields of Archiving, Library, Documentation and Museums.
A comprehensive introduction to information science is part of the basic knowledge provided in the CAS. Besides defining terms such as 'data', 'information', 'knowledge' and 'communication', information science concepts and methods are explained and discussed in depth.
Building on this, you will receive an insight into the working methods in a library/documentation and an archive. The research, preparation, presentation and the exploitation and impartation of information is also a central task of information professionals, irrespective of the type of information institution.
In the process, the entire spectrum of the different specialities is incorporated so that the joint fundamentals and methods are provided on the one hand, and the different tasks, methodologies and norms are also clarified on the other.
