NPSIG survey 2018 for #iflaGlobalVision

Global VisionIFLA

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!

You have time until July 10, and then the answers will be sent to IFLA to synthesize them in a transparent matter and include in the IFLA’s future stategies.
So, this is our vision, our future! Please, click here to fill in the form.

By Andrés Reinoso, in collaboration withNancy Monzón for the English translation. Andrés and Nancy are both NPSIG volunteers.

[Spanish version]

In our professional experience, we continuously deal with situations which are hard to be solved.  Many times we feel overwhelmed with drawbacks, unable to react. To try and fail can be part of a natural process of learning but, is this the way we take it?

“Prueba otra vez. Fracasa otra vez. Fracasa mejor”

Por Andrés Reinoso, con la colaboración de Nancy Monzón en la traducción al inglés. Ambos son voluntarios de NPSIG.

[English version]

Nuestras experiencias en el ámbito profesional nos enfrentan continuamente con situaciones de difícil solución. Muchas veces nos sentimos sobrepasados por los problemas, incapaces de reaccionar. Tratar y fallar puede ser parte de un proceso natural de aprendizaje, pero, ¿es así como lo tomamos?
