Looking ahead: EIFL’s plans for open access

EIFL-OA news and events - ოთხ, 21/02/2018 - 18:57

Open scholarship is growing in importance as a way of ensuring that there is global participation in research, improved quality and efficiency of education and science, and faster economic and social progress.

Over the next two years, the EIFL Open Access Programme will support open scholarship by focusing on four key areas: open access policies, open science training for early career researchers, sustainable open access journals and repositories, and Open Educational Resources.

Offline Internet: Providing Access without a Connection

IFLA - სამ, 20/02/2018 - 22:21

For around half of the world’s population, Internet connectivity is not a reality. Often, this is simply because there are no cables, or a good enough mobile signal, where they live. Cut off from information about jobs, education or healthcare, the lack of access risks compounding their marginalisation.

A summit in Tempe, Arizona (United States) last month focused on the potential of ‘offline Internet’ – initiatives that bring the benefits of connectivity to those who do not have it – and how to ensure greater synergies between existing initiatives.  The summit was organised by Arizona State University and Internet Sans Frontières with the support of IFLA.

As a guide for this work, the summit agreed on the principle that access to the information commons must be recognised as a fundamental human right. Participants underlined that it is through working together on standards, tools and practical projects that those currently without Internet can be best served.

The group will now look to establish structures, goals and take the first steps towards achieving the objectives set out. The organisers welcome other organisations which can contribute to ensuring that no-one is deprived of access to information for want of a connection.

One Step Closer to Access: IFLA Welcomes Progress towards EU Ratification of Marrakesh

IFLA - სამ, 20/02/2018 - 16:16

Last week, the Council of Ministers of the European Union, representing its Member States, voted to approve the ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty. This opens the way to the EU and its 28 Member States formally joining the Treaty in the summer, opening up many new possibilities for access to, and exchange of, books in accessible formats for people with print disabilities.  

The Marrakesh Treaty: A Major Step towards Access to Information Worldwide

 

The Marrakesh Treaty promises to remove needless copyright-related barriers to knowledge for people with print disabilities.

 

It responds to a market failure – the fact that companies were not ready or able to produce books and other works in formats that could be read by everyone – by giving its beneficiaries, and the libraries that serve them, the right to make and share accessible format copies, including across borders.

 

For the developing countries where most of those with print disabilities live, the potential of the Treaty can only be realised if the large numbers of accessible books in richer countries speaking major world languages become available.

 

This is why European ratification of the Treaty is so important, given the number of countries worldwide where French, English, Spanish and Portuguese are spoken. This ratification moved closer this week, as the Council of Ministers of the European Union gave its approval.

 

Libraries Ready to Realise the Potential

 

Libraries across the European Union – and in all other countries that have completed all relevant procedures – will soon be able to provide a wider range of books and materials to their communities. IFLA is currently working on a guide to help them do this.

 

IFLA, alongside other organisations sharing its mission to promote access to information, will continue to keep a close watch on the way national laws are updated within Europe. In the light of the overall objective of the Treaty, governments have a duty to avoid creating or maintaining financial or bureaucratic barriers for beneficiaries and libraries, such as supplementary charges or unnecessary form-filling.

 

IFLA Secretary-General Gerald Leitner commented:

The EU’s imminent ratification is not just good news for Europeans with print disabilities and the libraries that serve them, but for the entire global community. We look forward to seeing this potential realised, and will remain vigilant to ensure that national implementation does not allow for any back-sliding.

Joint SET/MLAS/CPDWL Call for Papers for IFLA 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

IFLA - სამ, 20/02/2018 - 03:53
Education and Training Section joint with Management of Library Associations Section and Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section
Theme: "Win-Win: building strong education, training and continuing professional development together with strong library associations"

New developments and trends both within the library and information arena and in society, with increased globalisation, urbanisation and digitalisation, emphasise the imperative for library associations and institutions to be ‘learning organisations’ and to develop their staff by providing opportunities for training and development. The specialised skills and qualifications of librarians and other information professionals play a key role in supporting the transformation of society and transforming the ways that libraries provide services to their communities.

Faced with the challenges associated with these ambitious goals, the interaction between the different actors of professional training and development is crucial. Among these actors, library associations must play their full part, both to contribute to this important task for the future of libraries and librarians and to further affirm their own role and contribution in building the society of tomorrow. The objective of this session is to showcase innovation and best practice and to inspire library associations around the world.

The IFLA  Education and Training Section (SET) in collaboration with Management of Library Associations Section (MLAS), and Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section (CPDWL), invites proposals to be presented at a two-hour session at the next IFLA General Conference on 24-30 August 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We are seeking proposals for 6-8 lightning talks (presentations of 7-8 minutes each) intended to nourish a panel discussion with the expectation of audience discussion.

  • associations providing initial Library and Information Science (LIS) training
  • associations supporting continuing education
  • associations offering coaching and/or mentoring opportunities
  • associations undertaking LIS course accreditation
  • associations determining and registering access to the LIS profession.
Language of the session

The working language of the session will be English.  However, presenters may also give their talk in any of the IFLA working languages. Simultaneous interpretation for this session has been requested but is not guaranteed; therefore, presenters are encouraged to provide a PowerPoint presentation in English to facilitate the understanding of ideas presented.

Joint SET/STL/CPDWL Call for Papers for IFLA 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

IFLA - სამ, 20/02/2018 - 03:27
Education and Training Section joins with the Science and Technology Libraries Section and the Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section.

Theme: "Tricks of the Trade of a Data Librarian: Learning it ALL"

Proposals are invited by the following IFLA Sections:  Science and Technology Libraries Section, Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section and the Education and Training Section for papers to be presented at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 24-30 August 2018.

Data continues to grow in importance and is a critical service point in how libraries are working with researchers to make available their data and findings. Not inconsequential is how the library must adapt to this new environment. The role of the data scientist expands as archiving and protecting the data becomes more central in publishing and accessing data.  New library services are evolving to promote the finding and processing of, citing to and preserving data.  These services require new skills and collaboration among library staff to work with both researchers and end-users as they manage and ultimately repurpose data going forward.  This session will explore how libraries are addressing the needs for scientific data management and curation.  It will explore the need to create appropriate service points, integrating with existing workflows and training of library staff to fulfill these needs.  The role of a data librarian is expected to only intensify in research environments.  This call is to invite librarians to share at the IFLA 2018 WLIC case studies and how their libraries are defining and incorporating the role of the data librarian.

There are different aspects to this topic: data literacy, data management, data curation, data services, and any host of other threads. In relation to how different libraries are filling staffing needs for data expertise, creating services around data literacy and data management, we are inviting submissions that pertain to any of the following areas:

  • Successful approaches, case studies and examples by libraries that have created training modules for library staff focused on data literacy and data services
  • Expectations for staff related to data management and services
  • Institutional changes to accommodate data librarianship in staffing, coverage, organizational change and related structures required to launch a data services program
  • Tools and resources that have been central to building out a data services program
  • Promotional strategies that have aided the growth and adoption of data librarianship
  • Assessment measures and methods to evaluate and assess efforts underway
  • Library partnerships that have participated in launching data programs in libraries
  • How Library Schools and Continuing Education providers develop curriculum and training for skills for future generations of data librarians
Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be original, previously unpublished work, and abstracts must be in ENGLISH but the full paper when accepted may be in any of IFLA’s official languages.  Abstracts must include:

  • Title of proposed presentation
  • Abstract of the proposed paper (no more than 500 words)
  • Name (s) of presenter(s) plus position/s and/or title(s)
  • Language of presentation
  • Employer/affiliated institution
  • Contact information including eMail address, telephone number(s)
  • Short biographical statement of presenter(s) (no more than 100 words)
Submissions

Please submit abstracts by 8 March 2018 as an attachment in MS Word to:

Julia Gelfand
Email: jgelfand@uci.edu

Receipt of all submissions will be confirmed.

Selection of papers is based on the abstract and presenters will be notified whether they have been successful by 1 April 2018.  Completed papers must be submitted no later than 1 June 2018.

Important Dates:

8 March 2018 – Submission of Abstract

1 April 2018 – Notifications sent to authors

1 June 2018 – Submission of full paper due

We eagerly await your contributions!

Save the date! Launch of IFLA Global Vision Report will kick-off next stage of discussions

IFLA - ორშ, 19/02/2018 - 13:02

The wait is nearly over!  Results from the world's first-ever global discussion across the library community will be revealed on Monday 19 March 2018 when IFLA’s Global Vision Report is launched during the IFLA President’s Meeting in Barcelona, Spain. 

Never before have so many librarians from every continent and almost every country in the world produced such a ground-breaking collection of ideas to connect and unite each other. Library leaders, outstanding experts, young professionals and librarians from multiple generations have had their say, making this a unique and hugely influential document that will shape the library field's future.

Of course, Global Vision does not stop here! The launch of the Global Vision Report kicks-off the next exciting, developmental stage in the Global Vision journey. This journey includes six regional workshops throughout March – July 2018 as well as a planned event during IFLA’s World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

IFLA Secretary General, Gerald Leitner said:

 “In 2017 the library community came together to create a Global Vision and those ideas and views make up this unique roadmap to unite the library field. In 2018 we are asking the library world to develop these ideas into action. The IFLA Global Vision Discussion continues!”

The next stage in the Global Vision discussion promises to be even more thrilling as we begin planning what a united library field looks like and it's never too late to get involved!

Leading the way: Libraries as motors of change

Dear colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join me for my first IFLA President’s Meeting 2018, to be held on 19 March at the Museu Marítim (Maritime Museum) in my beautiful hometown of Barcelona.

It is fitting that we convene in such a historic setting. A venue steeped in stories of exploration and navigation; stories that clearly resonate with our profession as we aim to navigate through unchartered territory. But let us embrace the unchartered as opportunity and focus on what is to come. The social changes which are shaping the way people and organisations work together. The economic changes which are challenging traditional notions of public service. And the technological changes which are redefining what it means to be an information professional.

By bringing together the biggest brains trust in the library field and gathering the best ideas and experience from outside, this event offers a unique chance to hear how leading players are approaching this future. How they are not only responding to this future but also seizing the opportunities it presents. How libraries can break down barriers and form new partnerships. How they can build sustainable foundations for their work. And how they can use digital tools to achieve the goal of access to information for all.

Bring your ideas, your experience, and your energy to Barcelona!
