Library’s classes help children conquer their fear of maths

EIFL-OA news and events - ორშ, 09/10/2017 - 16:59
COMMUNITY NEED

During visits to primary schools, librarians from Nakuru Public Library in the busy town of Nakuru in mid-western Kenya were alarmed to find that most of the children they spoke to hated mathematics. The children believed maths was very difficult, many were failing, and some dreaded the subject so much that they wanted to drop out of school.

 THE INNOVATIVE PROJECT

The librarians put their heads together: how could they help change children’s attitudes and boost their performance in mathematics?

Open access in Ghana

EIFL-OA news and events - ორშ, 09/10/2017 - 14:40
BACKGROUND

In Ghana, and in many other developing countries, research has limited social and economic impact because it is not widely available and accessible. Restricted access to research is also an obstacle to the production of new knowledge. Open access (OA) provides a solution by making scientific research visible and freely available online.

IFLA - ხუთ, 05/10/2017 - 16:25

The 17 short films selected to participate to the IFLA Metropolitan Libraries Short Film Award are available on the YouTube Channel acortodilibri.

They were projected in Montréal (Canada) in May - on that occasion the participants voted for the winner - and in Wrocław (Poland) in August during the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.

The 17 short films, all with English audio or subtitles (except one in German), are available as a unique file with the length of about 70 minutes, including the following titles:

- Laboratorio abierto (Buenos Aires)
- Welcome to the Learning Space (Canada Bay, Sydney)
- Fumo Family Library Community Poem (Philadelphia)
- Bargoonga Nganjin North Fitzroy Library (Yarra, Melbourne)
- La ruta de les paraules (Barcelona)
- Profumo di latte, di musica e parole (Rome)
- Knihovníkův Den (Prague)

Getting It Right: At Second Marrakesh Assembly, IFLA Launches Guide to Implementing the Treaty in Europe

IFLA - ხუთ, 05/10/2017 - 10:29

Following agreement in the European Union on legislation to implement the Marrakesh Treaty, Member States now have a year to comply. By 11 October 2018, all 28 countries need to give people who are blind, have visual impairments or other print disabilities, as well as the institutions that serve them, the possibility to make and share accessible format copies of books.

 

This will likely involve passing laws and regulations which will have a significant impact on efforts by libraries to end the book famine. Having worked hard, alongside partner organisations EBLIDA and EIFL, to ensure the best possible European laws, now is the time to get it right nationally.

 

To support libraries and library associations, as well as inform decision-makers involved in this process, IFLA has therefore worked, with support from EBLIDA, to produce a Europe-focused version of the Guide the Marrakesh Treaty produced by EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries). This explains the legislation, step by step, and then offers recommendations on what should – and shouldn’t – be included in laws.

 

Different versions – in pdf and word, as well as small and large print, are available here. We welcome comments and suggestions.
