The response so far to the IFLA Global Vision online voting has been incredible with thousands of votes coming in. But we need more!
We need your vote so that every voice in the library field can be heard.
When you gather together thousands of librarians from all over the world amazing things can happen and the real-time IFLA Global Vision voting during the President’s Session at the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in Wrocław was no exception, producing incredible insights into the profession as it aims to create a globally united library field.
IFLA is changing. This year it has launched a Global Vision discussion to explore with librarians around the world how a connected library field can meet the challenges of the future. IFLA is in a transition period, becoming an outward focused federation that truly reflects the voices of all libraries in all regions of the world.
Approximately 100 high-level representatives and observers from around the world attended yesterday’s annual CDNL meeting. The session was organised under the theme of National Libraries Connecting Continents and Communities and included a special segment devoted to IFLA’s Global Vision discussion.
IFLA’s Global Vision discussion invited associations to be at the forefront of holding conversations in their country on how a united library field can tackle the challenges of the future.
Wrocław’s Centennial Hall came alive in spectacular fashion on Sunday 20 August, as some 3100 delegates from 122 countries filled the historic space to experience the official opening of the 83rd IFLA General Conference and Assembly.
Do you want to help shape the future of the library field and be involved in a truly worldwide brainstorm? Today is the day you can play your part in IFLA’s Global Vision discussion, as the online voting platform has now launched during the World Library and Information Congress in Wrocław, Poland.
