Ideas para la acción!

Como saben, los últimos meses estuvieron realmente ocupados para nuestra comunidad bibliotecaria. ¡Se organizaron muchas actividades, talleres y discusiones en 190 países! Los resultados de las reuniones y los datos de votación fueron elaborados por la Federación Internacional de Asociaciones e Instituciones Bibliotecarias (IFLA) y permitieron crear un Informe de Visión Global. Aquí su versión en español.
Ahora es el momento de dar el siguiente paso!
Nos gustaría invitarte a compartir tu opinión sobre las oportunidades más importantes para el trabajo y la experiencia de tu Unidad Profesional. Puedes hacerlo a través de esta encuesta Global Vision 2018.
¡Dale un poco de tiempo para completarlo, porque tu contribución es muy importante!
Tienes tiempo hasta el 10 de julio, y luego las respuestas se enviarán a la IFLA para sintetizarlas e incluirlas en las futuras estrategias de la IFLA.
Entonces, esta es nuestra visión, ¡nuestro futuro! Por favor, haz clic aquí para completar el formulario.

How to participate ?
It’s simple, just share your photos showing off your fashion stylings at work on social networks (Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) and include the hashtag #LibrarianFashion.
These images, the NPSIG is organizing a session at the next IFLA congress on the theme: “Librarian Fashion: What does the way we dress say about us? ”

This session will include presentations and discussion where we reflect on the way we express ourselves, and the professional image that this presents to our library users, to our communities and, to a lesser extent, to our colleagues.

So, act now! Take your photos and share them with a comment and remember to use the hashtag #LibrarianFashion!
The campaign starts now and this until August 15, 2018 !

The first IFLA/ALA Webinar 2018 is now available online!



The first Webinar of 2018, organized jointly by IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group,IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and the American Library Association , had a great participation.
One of the reasons of this success could have been the alluring theme: “Can the library do everything? The changing role of librarians and the library as a space of social inclusion “.

The other reason was for the quality of the talks offered by the following professionals: Dr. Mei-Mei Wu, Kelly McElroy and Magalí Sanchez were very clear in their presentations, and they generated a series of interesting questions
