Conference Session 176

The IFLA World Report – A call to action [CANCELLED]

Committee on Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE)

17 August 2011 11:45 - 12:45 | Room: 208


The 77th IFLA Conference in Puerto Rico is launching the first session devoted to the World Report and its supporters.

This session will be structured with a round of quick presentations and the award of the best poster on the World Report. The topics of the presentation will be success stories about specific library communities. We need to collect details about libraries as access points, libraries as ICT learning centres, libraries for continuing education, libraries for specific needs, libraries for cultural heritage, in order to have a complete and update source of information.

Come and hear about the latest additions to the IFLA World Report and the plans for the future. Members of the FAIFE Committee will be on hand to answer your questions and take suggestions regarding potential new content to be included. Find out how the World Report can be used for advocacy and awareness raising. Your input will make the difference and we will spread the story of your community to make it a success all over the world!
