Just like Stuart described it in This Week in Libraries, IFLA 2010 in Gothenburg in nearly two weeks will be THE next big thing to come for librarians from all over the world. On the other hand, we know from many New Professionals out there who unfortunately won’t be aible to attend the IFLA Congress this year due to time and financial reasons, but who would really like to know what is going on in Sweden. Therefore we are planning to cover as much as possible of the whole conference via this blog and thus making IFLA 2010 accessible online for everyone. The idea is to build a blogging team consisting of New Professionals who could write about anything on-site: travel to the conference venue, single sessions and other events visited, library visits, thoughts in general, social events, sightseeing etc.
So far we are around five people to report live from Sweden. In order to achieve a good news coverage it would be fantastic to extend our team. So if you are going to attend the IFLA Congress and would like to help us, feel invited to join the NPSIG blogging team! Just let me know about the email address you used to get your wordpress account and I will add it to this blog.
Don’t hesitate to get involved – even a single post about one of the sessions in Gothenburg will help refining the big IFLA picture! In the end, I think it will be lots of fun for us as well as for the people not attending to see all our blog posts giving the conference a shape online.
