Ideas for Action!
As you know, last months were really busy for a library community. Many activities, workshops and discussions were organised in 190 countries! The results of meetings and voting data were elaborated by The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and allowed to create Global Vision Report Summary
Now it is time to take the next step.
We would like to invite you to share your opinion about the most important opportunities for the work and experience of your Professional Unit. You can do it through this Global Vision 2018 survey.
Give it a little time to complete it, because your contribution is very important!
For more information about the #iflaGlobalVision visit https://globalvision.ifla.org.
We are pleased to announce that the topics for the Webinars are already selected!
We want to thank you for the enormous participation in the election of these topics.
These will be organized jointly by IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and the American Library Association during 2018.
After a closed eleccion in the Mentimeter survey, the four selected are the following:
- Can the library do everything? Changing role of librarians and the library as a space of social inclusion
- Can new librarians have a voice? Training and professional development vs. workplace reality.
- Technology in libraries: event management tools, CMS and information retrieval tools; how to and best practices
- How to market your library. Tools for measuring the impact and presenting the results to the public
Definitely they are great topics, and they will surely come out of them very interesting webinars.
We thank you again for your participation and we are waiting for you for the first Webinar, whose date we will confirm shortly.
Did you know that only 5% of the information published in the world is fully accessible to people with disabilities who have difficulty accessing reading?While we work for free access to information for all, many people are unable to access library services because of their living conditions and / or physical, mental or cognitive disabilities.
The United Nations has asked IFLA and its Section on the Library Service for People with Special Needs (LSN) to participate in a major project on the service of persons with disabilities, providing information on the survey and showing the value of libraries in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
NPSIG invites you to participate in this initiative on behalf of your library association, national library or individual library: we will demonstrate the strength of our unified library field by answering the following survey
Deadline: October 20.
