Knowledge is Power / Η ΓΝΩΣΗ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΔΥΝΑΜΗ

University of Cyprus (Nicosia), November 2-4, 2016

The 3rd International Scientific Conference of the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation <http://www.sylviaioannoufoundation.org/> in collaboration with the University of Cyprus <https://www.ucy.ac.cy/en/> will be held on November 2-4, 2016 in Cyprus, on the occasion of the Inauguration of the ¨Stelios Ioannou" Learning Resource Centre <https://www.ucy.ac.cy/techsrv/en/building-facilities/university-campus/projects-under-construction/20-en-articles/top-menu/building-facilities/136-learning-resource-centre-stelios-ioannou>.

Presentations of significant European and American libraries will highlight the achievements of Library Science, while the challenges and prospects related to different models of Open Libraries, will be investigated during a roundtable discussion, with the participation of international experts and audience members.

The multifaceted nature and function of maps and charts as repositories of knowledge and power will be revealed during three sessions based on unpublished manuscript cartographical materials (both Western and Ottoman) from the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation collection: 
a luxurious portolan atlas of the Mediterranean, made by G. B. Cavallini in 1635; an anonymous Ottoman portolan chart of the Mediterranean in ink and watercolours, from the 17th-18th century; a map of Cyprus, drawn and annotated by a French traveller after A. Drummond in the 18th century; and one of the twenty-three known surviving manuscripts, with text, of the Kitab-ı Bahriye by Piri Reis.
