Greetings to you all:

You can now access our June Newsletter at

You will find a totally new design, thanks to our most recent Newsletter team member Sara Ulloa.

Besides the regular columns and information about the CPDWL Section activities, two main topics dominate the content.

The first topic provides updated information on the WLIC 2021 programme that is being prepared by the various working groups. The second topic is an international report of the support provided library staff in times of COVID-19 in six countries around the world, compiled by Ulrike Lang. This report is complemented by an in-depth article about Italy written by Matilde Fontanin,

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this issue and will find its information relevant, inviting, and worth sharing with your networks.

Please continue taking good care of yourselves. All the best,


Juanita Jara de Súmar
