On 14 and 15 April 2011, IFLA and FOBID are hosting a two-day conference at the National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague. This year’s Presidential Meeting is entitled “Libraries Driving Access to Knowledge – Action for Europe”.
The programme will focus on three major topics for the European and international library community: Copyright, Open Access, and Human Rights. The purpose of the conference is to propose new solutions to the challenges facing libraries and to enhance the visibility of the library community in Europe.
We are very happy to see some special offerings for LIS students:
- In the end of the conference, LIS students will have the chance to join a one-hour ‘Meet and Greet’ with IFLA President Ellen Tise to talk about the main conference themes.
- The conference fee for students is only 30 Euro (instead of 150 Euro).
If you are a LIS student, definitely consider attending this conference! Besides the really nice programme and the student benefits mentioned above, it is a great opportunity for you to easily get in touch with the IFLA network, meet a very prominent and international crowd of people and be at the very heart of IFLA. Hurry up, if you haven’t registered yet – there are still seats left!
See you in The Hague!
