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
