E4GDH and HBS workshop, WLIC 2023: Libraries Catalyze Communities in Times of Crisis

22 April 2024

How can librarians provide critical community-first information services before, during, and after disasters?

We will be exploring this question in our participatory workshop during the IFLA congress 2023 [Session 106].

Colleagues from Evidence for Global & Disaster Health SIG and Health & Biosciences Libraries section will focus on the role of libraries as catalysts during crises and discuss how to apply the research evidence into practice.

The workshop facilitators will present recent research findings, then host a discussion about putting these into practice. Examples will be shared and invited from the audience, as we explore the relevance of the recommendations to different geographical regions and library sectors.
