Conservation and Preservation Experts Attend Qatar National Library (PAC) Training Workshop in Oman

IFLA - პარ, 01/03/2019 - 17:09

Preservation and conservation specialists learned about the latest best practices in a workshop organized in the Sultanate of Oman by Qatar National Library, in its role as IFLA’s Regional Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Center, and UNESCO.

The three-day workshop was held from 19 – 21 February in collaboration with the National Records and Archives Authority in Oman, and was attended by book and manuscript conservation specialists from Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Iran, and other countries.

The workshop, “Practical Methods for the Scientific Examination of Library Objects,” focused on technical photography of heritage collections and the technique of reflectance spectroscopy.

Technical photography represents a collection of images taken with a modified digital camera using different lighting sources and filters to acquire a selection of images, with each providing unique information about the object under examination. Reflectance spectroscopy is an effective technique in identifying pigments and reveals information vital to preserving historical items.

“We are delighted that experts from across the Arab region attended the workshop and learned about the latest skills and tools for preserving historical manuscripts. The session is more important than ever, as the preservation of valuable heritage in the region is facing several challenges such as limited resources and lack of technical expertise,” said Stephane Ipert, Preservation and Conservation Manager at Qatar National Library.

The workshop is part of a larger project working toward preserving the documentary heritage in the Arab region by understanding the needs and challenges of the relevant institutions, and enhancing knowledge and information sharing. 

Qatar National Library was selected as IFLA’s Regional PAC Centre in 2015, and now supports libraries across the MENA region to safeguard documentary heritage in its diverse forms and formats.

Docker also offers great potential for repository managers which will be the focus of this webinar.  Topics will include:

  • What is a Docker image and what images have been published for DSpace
  • How to install Docker
  • How to launch DSpace 6 and DSpace 7 using Docker
  • How to participate in DSpace testing using Docker

If you are a repository manager who is interested in previewing new DSpace functionality or would like to become more involved in DSpace development or are a potential DSpace contributor who would like to learn how you can get started with the project, we encourage you to attend.  Time will be reserved at the end of the presentation for your questions.

WIPO goes to the regions: #Copyright4Libraries in Asia-Pacific, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean

IFLA - ხუთ, 28/02/2019 - 16:26

2019 will be a key year to show what libraries around the world need from copyright laws. A series of regional seminars organised by the World Intellectual Property Organisation will bring together senior officials, and IFLA will be there. 

IFLA works to promote copyright laws which allow libraries worldwide to achieve their public interest missions. In parallel with efforts to improve copyright laws at the national level around the world, IFLA is also calling for change globally at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).

Strong engagement at WIPO over the past years has led to an action plan on exceptions and limitations to copyright for libraries, archives, museums and research and educational institutions. At the heart of this is a set of regional seminars.

The WIPO regional seminars

WIPO will go to three regions: Asia-Pacific, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Each of the seminars will look into the current landscape of exceptions and limitations to copyright for libraries within the region. It is a key opportunity to explore the changes that may be necessary to enable libraries to serve their users best in the modern age, in particular through cross-border collaboration.

After the three regional seminars take place, there will be an international conference on exceptions and limitations to copyright for libraries, archives, museums, educational and research institutions. This will take place in October 2019 in Geneva. Drawing on the conclusions of the regional seminars, delegates will consider solutions to the needs identified.

These meetings will be a unique opportunity to encourage governments to pass progressive reforms both nationally and globally. IFLA will be calling on WIPO and its Members to take action internationally to promote minimum exceptions and limitations in all countries, and to facilitate cross-border collaboration.

Learn more during our webinars

To explain and support engagement around these seminars, IFLA is offering a series of webinars focused on each of the regions. These will set the context, explain why the seminars matter, present the process, offer an overview of the copyright landscape for libraries in the region, and explain how to get involved.

 

  • The first webinar, focused on the Asia-Pacific region, will be offered in English on 19 March 2019, at 10am CET.
  • The second webinar, focused on the African region will be offered in English on 3 May 2019 at 2pm CET in English, and in French on 7 May 2019 at 2pm CET.
  • The third webinar, focused on Latin America and the Caribbean, will take place in Spanish on 4 June 2019 at 5pm CET in Spanish, and in English on 5 June 2019 at 5pm CET.

Recordings will be made available afterwards.

For any questions, please reach out to ariadna.matas@ifla.org.
