IFLA Global Vision: North America collaborate for their big bold ideas

IFLA - ხუთ, 19/04/2018 - 16:11

​​

Hot on the heels of our fantastic Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) regional workshop last week, it was North America’s turn to shine as the IFLA Global Vision world tour reached Ottawa, Canada and to a wondrous reception.

The weather outside may have been frightful, but the atmosphere inside the Library and Archives Canada Preservation Centre, hosts of our second IFLA Global Vision Regional Workshop, was wonderfully warm owing to the great ideas generated over the two highly productive days.

 

We need Libraries and Archives more than ever

We were honoured to hear from Deputy Minister of Canadian Heritage, Graham Flack, who produced a special moment for all when he endorsed not only the sector but IFLA’s Global Vision goals, saying: 

We live in an era where false information threatens our democracy. In this era, we need our libraries and archives more than ever”

 

Bolstered by these reassuring words, Librarian and Archivist of Canada, Guy Berthiaume welcomed the 37 key players from a cross-section of academic and research libraries, public libraries and library associations across United States of America and Canada who were eager to begin.  

 

A new style of collaboration

Something magical happens when the library field comes together. A spirit of collaboration forms, providing fertile ground for rich vibrant discussions and North America seized this opportunity, producing amazing, bold ideas for actions to develop diverse cross-sectoral and cross-regional partnerships.

This second phase in the IFLA Global Vision journey is about finding fresh, innovative approaches to the challenges and opportunities we face and IFLA President Glòria Pérez-Salmerón shared her thoughts on the importance of collaboration in this process:  

“Challenges and opportunities must be analysed together to develop a new style of collaboration, not only among the regions but across the world and in all levels of the library community.

And judging by the enthusiasm and openness to discuss with each other, North America is already poised to explore diverse opportunities to collaborate!
 

A big step forward

Both Glòria Pérez-Salmerón and IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner were thrilled by the buzz of lively conversation, stories and a collective agreement from North America to make the vision a reality and Gerald Leitner added: ​

With this vibrant workshop of North-American key players we made a big step forward to reach our goal creating the biggest idea store for actions which will inspire the library field and will help IFLA to build a strategy for the future" 

 

IFLA Global Vision now wings its way to Tunis, Tunisia n 8 – 10 May for the Middle East and North Africa Regional Workshop. We cannot wait to hear what their ideas for actions will be!

IFLA Global Vision: Latin America and the Caribbean share their ideas for action

IFLA - პარ, 13/04/2018 - 18:13

​​

What a start! The first 2018 IFLA Global Vision Regional Workshop began this week in the Biblioteca del Congreso de Chile in Santiago, Chile and what a fantastic opening to our world tour it was.

Two days of vibrant discussions, networking, fun, and excitement ensued as the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region came together to create actions for the future.

On the way to a strong and united library field

IFLA President Glòria Pérez-Salmerón lead the workshop with infectious energy and the spirit of collaboration amongst the 30 countries attending burnt brightly, setting our Global Vision well on the way to creating the biggest idea store for action for a strong and united library field powering literate, informed and participative societies. 

A milestone for libraries

Director of Biblioteca del Congreso de Chile, Manuel Alfonso Pérez Guíñez welcomed every participant, declaring it an honour to have them in his country:

The IFLA Global Vision is a milestone for all libraries to face the challenges of a changing society. We wish you all the success in this workshop and in this next phase of the Global Vision discussion."

Finishing his speech, he said rousingly:

There are much more things that unite us than separate us."

And how true that is! A global initiative attracts a harmony of voices from many languages. Far from being barriers, they create bilingual songs, and this is what the Global Vision tour is producing – our own bilingual library song.

Debates, ideas, and stories flowed over the following two days as delegates shared their thoughts visually and verbally. Some truly creative work was achieved!

A fantastic start

It was a proud moment for everyone in the room as IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner praised LAC for a fantastic start to the Global Vision Regional Meetings, saying: 

You have set a great example for all other colleagues in the world. I'm very proud of everything you've done here."

The Global Vision now heads to North America for the second Regional Workshop on 16 and 17 April at Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa where more great ideas will be created and added to our ideas store for actions!
