Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression events at the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC), Wroclaw 2017

Session 030: Business Meeting I, 19 August, 10:15 – 12:15, Oval 11

Session 130: Business Meeting II, 22 August, 08:00 -10:30, Conference Room A

Session 151a: Can we be Neutral about NeutralityFAIFE Flash Session, 22 August 13:15 – 13:45, Main Court

Rising concerns about fake news, calls for filtering or censorship of materials expressing (perceived) extremist views, and long-standing challenges about what libraries should or should not offer their users have fed discussions about the place of neutrality in librarianship today. What does it mean to be "neutral", and is this still a worthwhile objective?

Session 160: Information Inequality, FAIFE Open Session, 13:45 – 15:45, Main Court (SI)

Twenty years ago, we worried about the “digital divide” and hoped that it would be resolved by the simple expansion of Internet access the country and around the world. But while billions of people now have access to the Internet—in one way or another—not all access is equal. The FAIFE session this year explores three kinds of “information inequality” that remain or have become real issues for the world’s Internet users.

Session 232: Being Open About Open, Joint FAIFE/CLM/ARL Session, 24 August,10:45 – 12:45, IASE Conference

‘Open Access’ publications represent a growing share of total scholarly output, and the principle that research outputs should be free to read is increasingly accepted by institutions and governments alike. Yet this is still a rapidly developing field, with questions as to effectiveness, financial sustainability, and how to ensure that it realises its potential to ensure that the right research can get to the people who need it. This session will consider a variety of perspectives, and feed discussion about what more can be done.

     

Copyright and Other Legal Matters at the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC)

ოთხ, 16/08/2017 - 16:55

The Copyright and Other Legal Matters (CLM) Strategic Programme represents the voice of the international library community in copyright and other legal concerns.

CLM strongly advocates at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Geneva, for a minimum international standard of exceptions and limitations to copyright, alongside partner organisations. More information on the outcomes of the last Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) at WIPO can be found here.

CLM is also active in issues relating to economic and legal barriers to the acquisition and use of library resources and effective library services, subscription and license agreements, legal issues relevant to broader access to knowledge, in particular online and a wide range of other legal matters of international significance to libraries and librarianship.

At this years’ World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in Wroclaw, Poland, CLM Committee members have organised the below sessions:

 

Breaking News – Burning Issues and Emerging Challenges in Copyright - Copyright and other Legal Matters (SI) (Session 119), Monday, 21 August, 16:00 – 18:00, Main Court (SI)

This session will offer a crash course in the key arguments and issues for copyright in libraries today. As discussions rage, both inside and outside of legislatures, about the best way of keeping laws up to date with digital technologies, the first half of this session will ask if fair dealing or fair use – more flexible exceptions based on principles rather than strictly applied rules – are the best answer. The second half will focus on issues which are likely to take up more and more attention in the coming year, thanks to political, legal and technological change.

Chair: Winston Tabb (Johns Hopkins University, United States)

16:00 - 17:00 – Debate: Fair Use / Fair Dealing Is the Most Helpful Copyright Exception for Libraries

  • Victoria Owen (Library, University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada)
  • James G. Neal (Columbia University, United States)
  • Denise Nicholson (Scholarly Communications and Copyright Services Office University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa)
  • Jessica Coates (Australian Libraries Copyright Committee and Australian Library and Information Association, Australia)

17:00 - 18:00 – Emerging Issues

  • Ancillary Copyright, Armin Talke (Berlin State Library, Germany)
  • The Court of Justice of the European Union Ruling on E-Lending, and its Impact in Europe and Beyond, Vincent Bonnet (European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Association (EBLIDA), Netherlands)
  • 3D Printing and Libraries, Agnieszka Koszowska

 

Models for Copyright Education in Information Literacy Programs - Copyright and Other Legal Matters with Information Literacy (Session 184/Off-site 8)Wednesday, 22 August, 8:30 – 15:30, Off-site 8, University of Lower Silesia, Strzegomska 55, 53-611, Wrocław, Poland

The purpose of this day-long event is to discuss models for education on copyright, licensing, and other legal matters within the scope of information literacy programs. The session will focus on effective teaching methods of the full range of copyright and licensing issues for libraries, research and publication, and education: exclusive rights, copyright duration, limitations and exceptions, digital copyright, licensing in the digital environment, applications of the law nationally, the international copyright system, and the legal framework for open access licensing. The offsite session will be devoted to methodologies for providing a comprehensive knowledge of the legal landscape for copyright, licensing, and related legal and policy matters in libraries and universities. Registration The offsite session is available to 2017 WLIC conference participants at no extra charge, but requires registration. A WLIC badge will be required to enter the program venue. Registration  for this offsite session is open from 1 May – 15 July 2017 or until session is full. Capacity is limited to 100 participants.

Look out for the CPDWL posters at the IFLA WLIC in Wroclaw!

ორშ, 14/08/2017 - 20:52

The CPDWL team have developed a series of posters to communicate the importance of CPD – and that everyone in our profession needs to play a part.

 

The poster focuses on the IFLA Guidelines for Continuing Professional Development: Principles and Best Practices.

 

We all know that the future of the LIS sector depends on ensuring that our high quality professionals have the knowledge and expertise to design and deliver information services which meet the current and future needs of their communities. Our poster articulates the importance of CPD for all stakeholders: individual learners, employers, professional associations, LIS educators and training providers. It argues that to be a five-star profession, all players must commit to the principles of best practice in CPD and work together to create and support opportunities for ongoing learning and development.

 

The poster not only aims to increase awareness of the value of CPD in general and of the IFLA Guidelines for CPD resources in particular, but also to promote the work of the IFLA Section for CPDWL. It is designed to be displayed in libraries, information centres and training environments across the world.  We have translations prepared in all the IFLA official languages – plus quite a few others! The CPDWL community has worked together to create the posters in English, French, German, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian – and of course Polish!

 

If you are at IFLA, please visit the poster displays 179/180 to see the posters in all the different languages.  The posters are on the IFLA CPDWL website [ https://www.ifla.org/cpdwl/conferences]

 

The Creative Commons licence allows for translation into other languages as well. If you are interested in translating your poster into your own language, please contact Gill Hallam g.hallam@qut.edu.au to get a copy of the master file.

Un acceso significativo a la información para no dejar a nadie atrás: Lanzamiento del Informe DA2I 2017

ორშ, 14/08/2017 - 13:08

NUEVA YORK, 17 de julio de 2017 —

La Federación Internacional de Asociaciones de Bibliotecarios y Bibliotecas (IFLA), en colaboración con el Grupo de Tecnología y Cambio Social de la Universidad de Washington (TASCHA) presentó en el día de hoy el primer informe sobre Desarrollo y Acceso a la Información (DA2I) en la Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York, durante el Foro Político de Alto Nivel de las Naciones Unidas.

El Informe DA2I demuestra lo importante que es el acceso a la información para el desarrollo, y defiende y promueve un apoyo coordinado y sostenido de todas las partes para garantizar dicho acceso. Demuestra cómo el acceso significativo a la información, con el apoyo de las bibliotecas, contribuye a alcanzar los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de las Naciones Unidas, y hace un seguimiento del progreso que los países están realizando para cumplir sus compromisos en función de la Agenda 2030 de las Naciones Unidas.

A medida que progresa la implementación de la Agenda para el Desarrollo Sostenible, la necesidad de subrayar aquellos factores que retrasan el desarrollo en todas nuestras sociedades se torna cada vez más y más urgente. Pocos factores son tan perniciosos como la pobreza informativa- la falta de acceso o capacidad de utilizar la información necesaria para impulsar económica y socialmente la creación de sociedades inclusivas. La Presidenta de la IFLA Donna Scheeder destacó lo siguiente: “No existe el desarrollo sostenible sin acceso a la información. Y no existe un acceso a la información significativo e inclusivo sin bibliotecas.” 

Además de los cambios a las regulaciones y la inversión en infraestructura necesarios para garantizar que todos tengan la posibilidad práctica de conectarse en línea, el informe convoca a la realización de un esfuerzo coordinado para garantizar que las personas puedan tener la confianza y las habilidades necesarias para optimizar el uso de Internet. Esto requerirá contribuciones de todos los niveles de gobierno y de todos los grupos interesados. 

A fin de realizar un seguimiento del progreso de los Estados Miembro, el informe presenta una serie de indicadores de la línea de base, utilizando conjuntos de datos establecidos, y proporcionando el aporte de expertos internacionales que demuestran cómo el acceso a la información ya está haciendo una diferencia. El informe se centra este año en cuatro Objetivos de Desarrollo (ODS) destacados en el Foro Político de Alto Nivel de las Naciones Unidas del año en curso, a saber: agricultura (ODS2), salud (ODS3), igualdad de género (OCS5) e infraestructura e innovación (ODS9).

Las bibliotecas, como centros públicos confiables y preexistentes, con una perspectiva global y una marcada comprensión de las necesidades locales, son socios fundamentales de los gobiernos para alcanzar los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. La IFLA está trabajando a nivel global para garantizar que se reconozca el aporte fundamental de las bibliotecas al desarrollo.  También ha firmado acuerdos con representantes de 73 países, comprometiéndose a trabajar con ellos para lograr un entendimiento de la Agenda 2030 de las Naciones Unidas a nivel nacional y regional, y a involucrarse en los procesos de planificación, monitoreo e implementación de los Planes Nacionales de Desarrollo. 

El Secretario General de la IFLA, Gerald Leitner, remarcó lo siguiente: “El sector bibliotecario es único. Es una comunidad global de millones de instituciones que comparten los mismos valores y objetivos. La IFLA, como voz global de las bibliotecas, está orgullosa de poder aportar este potencial para respaldar el desarrollo. Creo que juntos podemos lograrlo. Ciertamente, el sector bibliotecario está listo”.

One week to go! Are you ready to vote in the IFLA Global Vision discussion?

ორშ, 14/08/2017 - 12:00

The Hague, Netherlands, 14 August 2017

It’s just one week to go before IFLA launches the IFLA Global Vision voting site and hears the views of librarians and library friends all over the world. Are you ready to get involved? 

On Monday 21 August, during the World Library and Information Congress in Wroclaw, Poland, IFLA’s Secretary General, Gerald Leitner, will unveil a global platform to tackle the challenges of the future. Six questions – each with 10 possible choices – will help create a worldwide library roadmap that will unite the library field and make it stronger in the face of ever-increasing globalisation. 

Since the kick off meeting, held in Athens, Greece in April 2017, and the six regional workshops in Washington D.C.,Yaoundé, Alexandria, Buenos Aires, Singapore and Madrid, the IFLA Global Vision discussion has motivated librarians to organise their own discussions - from Aruba to Zambia - sparking ideas about the best ways libraries can unite. The Global Vision vote marks the next phase in this journey. 

You can follow the whole journey by watching our Global Vision discussion video!

It will be dedicated to exploring a variety of trends: you can come with a topic you would like to talk about with professionals from all over the world; we vote in the morning to decide what will be explored during the day.

In addition to the lively discussion, during the day we will have a special Movement workshop held by Anna Olkinuora from UtoUto performing arts company. Workshop is about daring to give the body freedom of being an important part of creative processes, provoke mind and connect it with ideas through the different “logic”, also to brush up the ability of alternative from spoken word ways of communication.

 

Creative Movement Workshop by UtoUto
– to involve body into creative processes

The theme of IFLA camp 2017 is movement. Creative movement workshop is about daring to give the body freedom of being an important part of creative processes, provoke mind and connect it with ideas through the different “logic”, also to brush up the ability of alternative from spoken word ways of communication.

UtoUto’s workshops are not one particular method one has to rationally understand. The core of the work is based on UtoUto’s own methods of performance making that has been built and developed from various theatre, dance and performing arts practices. During the workshop images, thoughts, text and music are used as stimuli.

Creative movement is about not being afraid to look silly or make a mistake. No previous skills from dance or movement needed.

Workshop facilitator – Anna Olkinuora, performing artist and director from UtoUto Performing arts company.

 

Day 2

The second day will be dedicated to a short Cycling for libraries tour in the Wroclaw area, an opportunity to meet Polish librarians and see points of interest.

This session will launch the Global Vision online voting platform and invites all from the library world to take part and vote to help create a united library field.

The Closing Session on Thursday 24 August from 16:15 – 17:30 (CEST) will be the last chance for viewers to get a sense of WLIC2017.
