So, is it a real camp with tents, camp fire, hammock and singing?It is even better!
The webinar “Libraries and the Implementation of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development” was recently held by the information professionals from Latin America and the Caribbean. The webinar was organized as support to the IFLA’s worldwide efforts in empowering librarians to become strong advocates towards the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda.
The speakers were Sueli Ferreira (IFLA LAC Chair), Loida Garcia-Febo (IFLA ALP Chair), Ana Maria Talavera (Colegio de Bibliotecologos del Peru) and Maria Violeta Bertolini (IFLA Advocacy Communications Officer). The event was organized with the support of the IFLA Latin America and Caribbean Section, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group.
Sharing Economy and Libraries
People around the world have been transforming the unused capacity of things they own and services they provide, such as business expertise, power tools, bikes and even cars. The National Journal writes “Libraries are especially apt to increase their relevance in the coming years, considering the rise of the ‘sharing economy,’ a concept arguably invented by the first libraries.”
