First Version of IFLA Toolkit on National Literacy and Reading Strategies Launched

IFLA - პარ, 06/09/2019 - 15:39

On the occasion of the United Nations International Literacy Day (September 8), IFLA has formally published the first version of the IFLA Toolkit for National Literacy and Reading Strategies.  

Libraries play a major role in supporting literacy and reading through providing access to books and promoting a love of them throughout life.

Yet to realise their potential fully, libraries’ role needs to be recognised by governments, and integrated into broader literacy and reading strategies. This is the path to more effective partnerships, as well as adequate resources.  

The first version of this IFLA toolkit aims to help library associations, institutions and individual library and information workers to advocate for libraries’ role in literacy and reading to be recognised in relevant national strategy documents.

The Toolkit was presented at the World Library and Information Congress in Athens, Greece, during a vivid workshop with over 100 delegates from various countries. A visitor underlined: ‘What an inspiring, productive and encouraging workshop’.

This IFLA Toolkit aims to provide guidance and flexible materials for library associations, their members and the wider Library and Information Science (LIS) community when engaging with relevant public authorities.

It focuses primarily at national-level strategies, and complements work elsewhere into developing strategies for libraries and library systems. The toolkit includes chapters looking at how to structure an advocacy campaign, as well as arguments and evidence to use in order to strengthen your case. It also contains an extensive list of resources you can use.

It is – as the name suggests – a toolkit. Depending on the situation in your country – who is responsible for literacy, who pays, whether you have a strategy already – you will need different tools. You can therefore adapt this document, and make your own additions or variations.

Take a look at the first version of the toolkit. If you need more information or have questions, please contact Adriaan Langendonk, Chair of the IFLA section Literacy & Reading IFLA: adriaan.langendonk@kb.nl or alangendonk@lezen.nl.

About the 2019 LYRASIS Member Summit

DSpace news - ხუთ, 05/09/2019 - 17:57

Don’t miss this year’s LYRASIS Member Summit October 3-4 in Chicago. The theme is “From Local to Global” and it promises to be a fast-paced, two-day experience that pairs imagination with innovation and discussion with action. Sitting beside you in Chicago will be senior leadership from forward thinking research, public and academic libraries, museums and archives.

We need your active voice for the discussions on Day 1 – our “Innovation with Imagination” day – to critique, add value, and help set direction for the LYRASIS $1M+ FY 2020 Research and Development budget. Our Day 1 keynote will be Kaitlin Thaney, Director of Wikimedia’s Endowment, previously at Mozilla, Digital Science and Creative Commons. She will discuss the imperative to “innovate or perish” and how to create innovative programs that leverage and create community. Shift into high gear for Day 2 – our “Discussion with Action” day. Our Day 2 keynote will be Heather Joseph, Executive Director of SPARC and recognized open access advocate. She will frame content and publishing for us with new eyes, and how to do more with less in our ever changing landscape. This year’s summit will feature another challenging keynote, to be announced here soon! Breakouts will include ScholComm 2.0, how to change the patron/user experience as it relates to content, scalable technology and platforms, and leveraging non-profit platforms.

Our first Member Summit featured a keynote by Rob Cartolano, Associate Vice President of Technology and Preservation at Columbia University, who launched a rallying cry for the importance of innovation that leads to programs and services offered by non-profits. To rise to that cry, in less than a year, LYRASIS launched our Leaders Circle and the $100,000 Catalyst Fund. Summit year two we welcomed Deanna Marcum, the previous second in command at the Library of Congress and currently working with Ithaka S+R, who talked about the importance of consolidation of smaller siloed non-profits, the benefits of scale, and how common visions develop better solutions. Her keynote was the inspiration for LYRASIS and DuraSpace’s merger, completed in June of this year. Last year’s keynote was John Bracken, Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and formerly an active change leader in the world of funding/foundations, who spoke to our members about using technologies with communities to transform libraries, both public and academic. This spawned a double – triple partnership between LYRASIS and DPLA; and between NYPL, DPLA and LYRASIS.

This year’s summit will feature another challenge put forth by two keynote speakers.

Scholarly Communications/Library Publishing

Whether you are a public library, academic library, special collection or other, locally managed, but globally linked scholarly communications is now within our grasp. Be part of creating, sharing, or consuming content. Inform and drive your patrons, researchers, or local experts to lead the way.

User/Patron Experience, whether through audio, video, text, or data

Delivering the best possible research, analysis or reading experience is at the heart of what libraries do on a daily basis. This track will dig into topics like using data to improve the experience of your users, facilitating and supporting community initiatives like literacy, and getting the most out of your collections through new technologies.

Community Supported Programs (CSP)

LYRASIS has the largest collection of CSP’s in the world with over 1,733 institutions that contribute fiscally to their operation. Learn from what works (and doesn’t work). How the It Takes a Village framework increases the chances for sustainable success and lowers the risk of setbacks.
