Open Science Fair

EIFL-OA news and events - ორშ, 19/06/2017 - 18:32

Open science, a research model that aims to make scientific research processes and results more accessible and visible, faces many challenges, for example, the ingrained habits of researchers who have been practising closed science for many years, limited rewards (funding and publishing) for open science research, lack of technical tools and services, and concern about non-academic communities accessing data.

Open Access, Public Access, Meaningful Access: Libraries heard at WSIS Forum and Human Rights Council

IFLA - ორშ, 19/06/2017 - 11:52

Article 19 of the Universal Convention on Human Rights offers freedom of access to information for all. This freedom has long been at the heart of the work of libraries.


IFLA’s presence at the World Summit on the Information Society Forum 2017 and the 35th Session of the Human Rights Council allowed delegates to hear the library perspective on three aspects of access – open (free for users), public (Internet access in libraries) and meaningful (ensuring that people have the skills necessary to make information useful).


Promoting Open Access


IFLA has advocated for open access to research publications since the early 2000s, arguing that this is key to ensuring that the benefits of science and innovation can spread to the largest possible number of people. When work is produced by public institutions, or using public money, the argument for open access is all the stronger.


This is the point IFLA made in a panel looking at the adoption of open access by intergovernmental organisations, alongside the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), UNESCO, the World Health Organisation, CERN, the European Space Agency, and the Asian Development Bank. UNESCO and WIPO have been particularly active in this field, a point underlined by IFLA in calling for further progress across the board.


Promoting Public Access


The role of libraries and other community spaces in giving free public access to the Internet will be important for as long as there are people who do not have the money or inclination to get Internet access at home. In a session focusing on the situation of Small Island Developing States, IFLA stressed that libraries can play a vital role in places where an Internet connection can cost as much as the average wage. In addition, by providing a trusted public space, they can bring together other services, and contribute to community building.


For public access to work, it is important that there are no unnecessary barriers. IFLA joined a consultation at the Human Rights Council, underlining concerns about the use of filtering technologies and algorithms in controlling Internet access – how can people know whether what they are seeing or posting is being blocked or manipulated?


IFLA also highlighted the risk that contract terms and technological protection measures can undermine the rights given to uses through exceptions and limitations to copyright.


Promoting Meaningful Access


Finally, IFLA highlighted the importance of ensuring that access to information comes with the skills that allow people to use it. With the current concern about fake news, IFLA suggested that the only effective response was to help people of all ages develop the skills necessary to spot lies online. Given the speed at which stories can travel, no regulation could be fast enough.


On the positive side, developing skills and attitudes online could help everyone take advantage of the opportunities created by the Internet. There are countless examples of libraries doing this, drawing on their unique, trusted place in the community, and the skills and motivation of their staff.


As our societies and the ways in which we access information changes, the role of libraries is changing also. Far from diminishing, libraries are as important as ever, not only in terms of their practical work in bridging the digital divide, but also in bringing their values and working methods to the governance of the Internet.



The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum is an annual event bringing together governments, business and civil society, from around the world. This year’s theme was how Information and Communications Technologies can help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals. The Human Rights Council meets at least three times a year, and discusses both country specific reports and broader themes, for example freedom of expression or cultural rights.

Design Thinking: The Role of Library Staff in Participatory Design

How can libraries adopt “design thinking” to improve their library services, programming and spaces?   What do libraries need to do to prepare staff for the change? According to Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO, “Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”  This webinar explores design thinking principles, showcases how design thinking can be used to improve what libraries do and how libraries address user needs, and identifies strategies that libraries can use to adopt design thinking into their own work.

Keynote Rolf Hapel, Director of Citizens’ Services and Libraries in Aarhus, Denmark

“New Ways of Working – a Danish approach to Design Thinking and other participatory methods in the libraries”


Rolf Hapel has been since 2006 director of Citizens’ Services and Libraries in Aarhus, Denmark. He is librarian by education and holds a master degree in Digitization and Public Administration. He has served as librarian, deputy manager, city librarian and di-rector in four Danish cities.

He has been chair of numerous steering groups, committees and advisory boards nationally and internationally. E.g. he is currently member of advisory board for EU project Public Libraries 2020, he was member of advisory board for the Global Libraries initiative of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 2008-2013, member of the jury in the competition for the new main library in Oslo in 2009 and advisor to Helsinki competition for new city library 2012. Member of PubliCA consortium 1997-99 and member of the Bertelsmann Foundation International Network of Public Libraries (INPL) 1999-2003. Member of the Danish Ministry of Culture Committee, forming the Danish act on public libraries, 2003.

Rolf has written many articles and he is an international renowned speaker on issues like library development and transformation. Among recent tasks on national level was heading the Danish Digital Library coordinating body. Internationally, the Next Library biannual conferences and the cooperation with Chicago Public Library and the design company IDEO supported by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on Design Thinking for Libraries have mapped Aarhus as one of the hot spots for public library development in the world. The biggest challenge for Rolf has been the realization of the stunning main library, Dokk1, that opened in June 2015 in Aarhus. It is a 30.000 m2 building reflecting a new concept of the physical library in the networked society and Dokk1 attracts 1,3 mill. visitors per year in a city of 330.000 inhabitants.

Transformation of public libraries in Kenya

In 2010, fewer than five of Kenya's network of 61 public libraries had internet connections or computers for public use.

Today, all 61 have 10 or more computers that are connected to the internet, and which are free for the public to use. The number of people using public libraries, and the diversity of services offered by public libraries, have both increased dramatically with the arrival of computers and the internet.
