Review on Section's Satellite meeting in Paris, 2014

8 June 2015

    "15 to 20 year olds reading across the world: Why? Where? How?" Young people between 15 and 20 years old around the world live in very different geographic, social, economic, every-day life conditions. Some attend secondary school or university, some work, some both study and work and some do not study nor work. How can 15-20 year olds that do not read be led to reading? What roles can be played by physical and digital libraries, by schools and cultural institutions, by associations and work places? Read the personal review of the IFLA satellite conference Section held in Paris, France 2014.

        Libraries creating content for/with children and young adults Libraries have always created content, writing reviews, organising writing clubs or collecting oral tradition for instance, and editing and publishing it in different ways, confidential or not. But content development has greatly increased in the last decade, thanks to the much larger inclusion of readers in library life and of course, thanks to technology. It makes collecting, recording, creating, publishing and accessing so much easier and more possible to most, not only to librarians but to young readers and their families. How is this content creation happening? What kind of content is being created, how, who by, with what goals? How are these actions helping children and/or young adults and their families engage with reading? How is local content being published and preserved? How is it being received all over the world?
