LATINA is an acronym for "Learning And Teaching IN A digital world". We have added "Post-IT" to the title to indicate that most of the "new" information technologies are now taken for granted. It is so cheap and ubiquitous that virtually everybody use it in some way or other,- but not always in sufficiently critical and qualified ways. We also believe that producing content in-house and make it available (retrievable) for users both inside and outside the institution will play an increasing role. For this reason it is said that libraries are going from a logic based on acquisition "outside-in" to production "inside-out", This is valid not only for researchers but also for teachers, students - and librarians! Hence the "Post-IT" label.
