IAP Project Report: Hungary (2018) "Let’s work together on library advocacy!"

IFLA - ორშ, 29/10/2018 - 15:06

​IFLA supported an International Advocacy Programme project for librarians from the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine and Hungary in 2018.

After completion of this regional project we asked the project team some questions and this is what they told us about the workshop they organised.

What were your goals?

It was after the European IAP Regional Workshop in December 2016 that the Board of Association of Hungarian Librarians (AHL) decided to organize a workshop for the Central European region, particularly for those who did not take part of the Hague meeting. We wanted to raise awareness on SDGs and libraries, to develop advocacy skills, to show methods and good practices of advocacy activities, to collect library stories, to inspire participants to carry out new advocacy activities, and – last but not least – to expand our professional networks.

How did you plan to make this happen?

AHL received a grant from the IFLA IAP to implement this project. Before submitting our application, we asked the library associations from neighbouring countries if they were interested, and they readily sent letters of intent to show their support. The Polish Library Association even joined later on as a co-organizer of the workshop.

In November 2017 we organized a national conference on advocacy in Budapest, under the title "Librarians for implementing the UN 2030 Agenda and sustainable development", with funding from the National Cultural Fund.. This event was an orientation event for Hungarian librarians, and, at the same time, a preparation for the international IAP workshop, supported by IFLA.

The main objectives were to inform librarians about the UN 2030 Agenda, the SDGs, and the role librarians can play in achieving the goals, advocacy, as well as the position and activities of the Hungarian Government on related issues.

Keynote speakers of the conference represented various ministries and authorities, as well as large libraries and library associations (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ministry of Agriculture, AHL, National Agricultural Library and Documentation Centre, Alliance of Hungarian Libraries, Metropolitan Szabó Ervin Library). One of the most distinguished speakers was ambassador Csaba Kőrösi, Director Environmental Sustainability at the Office of the President of the Republic of Hungary, who was the chair of UN Committee that developed the SDGs.

As a follow up to this event, in January 2018 a brochure with short stories and pictures was published on how libraries can contribute to SDGs and IFLA’s actions. The brochure is accessible online and in print. It was also translated into English to be used by participants at the workshop.

The workshop took place in the National Szechenyi Library. The participants were representatives of library associations from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and the Ukraine, with four presidents of library associations, from Poland, Slovakia, the Ukraine and Hungary, among them!

The two-day workshop was moderated by Agnes Hajdu Barat, President of AHL and Andras Giczi, Secretary of the Section of Research and Special Libraries, AHL. In her lecture Agnes gave an overview of the IFLA strategies and the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda and the SDGs as the main theme of the workshop.

All countries presented their associations, with special relevance to advocacy activities. The Polish and Ukrainian colleagues (Joanna Pasztaleniec-Jarzynska, Magda Gomulka and Valentina Pashkova) contributed to the programme also as tutors (on how to prepare an advocacy action plan and how to collect stories).

How did it work?

The project was an excellent opportunity to meet for the library leadership of participating countries. As these countries have many issues in common, they had useful discussions, shared their views and thought together of possible solutions and next steps. They were very much interested in getting acquainted or updating their knowledge on this topic, seeing the results of relevant activities in Hungary and other countries as potential examples for their practice. And most important, they were eager to share their knowledge and ideas, to learn new solutions from each other.

To sum up, the participants found the event useful, and were grateful for IFLA's support to the meeting. They decided to collect stories and exercise advocacy activities, i.e. to take an active part in promoting and implementing the UN SDGs. The Hungarian organizers had the impression that the event was evaluated by participants as useful and instructive.

The intensive programme was interrupted by short games and other activities in pairs or in groups, in order for the participants to relax. This idea was taken from similar IFLA events. In addition to the professional programme, we found time for library visits to the National Library and the Library of the Hungarian Parliament. There was also time for a cultural programme with a musical performance, thanks to the sponsorship of the Department of Cultural Diplomacy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

How did you use communications during the project?

As mentioned already, publications were prepared in advance in Hungarian and in English, and questionnaires on library advocacy and collecting stories were sent out to participants. Lectures were supplemented by practical training. News about the event were published in each country.

The Polish Library Association prepared a digital publication summarising the workshop, as well as the ideas shared and the guidance received. This will be published shortly on the website of the Polish Library Association. The publication will provide an insight into how various countries implement the UN 2030 Agenda and SDGs, based on materials collected in advance and from the presentations at the workshop.

What did you learn in the process?

The project convened the representatives of library associations from Central Europe (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and the Ukraine) to meet again and to discuss the UN 2030 Agenda and the SDG. This is a very important topic which will determine the future of us all, including library users and libraries in the relevant countries and on an international scale.

What are your next steps?

The participants decided to continue their activities and cooperation on the SDGs and the UN 2030 Agenda in the spirit of the Budapest meeting, both in their countries and together at different fora. They plan to meet again in 2019 within the framework of the conference series Visegrad 4+ in Bratislava, Slovakia.

IFLA - ორშ, 29/10/2018 - 11:25

Dear colleagues

The IFLA Governing Board seeks nominations for new members of the IFLA Committee on Standards by 15 February 2019. The term served by new members will be from August 2019 to August 2021. Please share this message with others who might be interested to ensure as wide a call as possible.

The IFLA Committee on Standards oversees the production, management and promotion of IFLA’s own standards (including guidelines), and provides a central coordinating body to which any IFLA standards-related issues can be directed.

Read more about the responsibilities of the Committee in the full terms of reference.

Who is eligible to be nominated?

The IFLA Governing Board will be appointing up to seven new members who will be selected mainly on the basis of their expertise. They will also seek to have geographical representation and a mix of skills among the Committee members. The Governing Board will base its selection of members on evidence presented as to the nominees:

  • previous experience connected with one or more IFLA standards (drafting, managing, or contributing to an IFLA standard), or knowledge about and experience with the development of library standards in general which might be applicable in the IFLA context;
  • interest in improving an aspect of IFLA’s own standards management: whether that is in the coordination of production and revision processes, promotion of IFLA standards, relationships with non-IFLA standards bodies, or other areas as described in the responsibilities of the Committee. 
  • the ability and willingness to contribute regularly and actively to the work of the Committee on Standards both during meetings and virtually, during the year, between meetings.

Nominees must also have:

  • a reasonable expectation of being able to attend (without cost to IFLA) the business and professional meetings of the Committee. The meetings are usually held during the IFLA World Library and Information Congress which for the terms of the nominee will be in:

  • a working knowledge of at least one of the working languages of IFLA (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian and Spanish). Since the business meetings of IFLA are generally conducted in English, reasonable fluency in this language is necessary to be able to fully participate as a member of the IFLA Committee on Standards.

Members are appointed initially for two years. From these nominations a Chair will be selected.

How to nominate someone

Nominations for this Committee should be submitted by the deadline (15 February 2019) using the online nominee consent form. Candidates may nominate themselves.

The details of nominees may be shared with the IFLA Professional Committee, the IFLA Committee on Standards, and the IFLA Governing Board members.

Persons selected for the Committee will be informed in April 2019. This timing will enable them to take advantage of the early registration discount for the IFLA World Library and Information Congress where the first meeting of the new Committee members will take place.

Further questions?

If you have further questions about the Committee and its responsibilities, please contact Diane Beattie, current Chair of the Committee on Standards, or Lidia Putziger, Nominations Coordinator.

I look forward to receiving your nominations by February 15th.

Recording Available: “Securing Community-Controlled Infrastructure: SPARC’s plan of action”

DSpace news - ხუთ, 25/10/2018 - 20:29

On October 24th SPARC’s Executive Director and Board Member of DuraSpace, Heather Joseph, presented a DuraSpace members-only webinar, “Securing Community-Controlled Infrastructure: SPARC’s plan of action.”

In a recently published article, “Securing community-controlled infrastructure,” Heather Joseph, SPARC Executive Director, begins to address a common concern that was raised by the Open community in late 2017: “Everything we have gained by opening content and data will be under threat if we allow the enclosure of scholarly infrastructures.” In this webinar, Heather shared SPARC’s efforts on their community-controlled infrastructure project that further explores this question.  Heather highlighted what lead to SPARC conducting a market analysis, which included both a financial analysis and an analysis of strategies of some of the key commercial  players in the infrastructure arena, and the implications of those strategies for our community.  DuraSpace members were the first to hear about the findings of this work and learn what the next steps are.

The recordings and presentation slides of both webinars are available at https://duraspace.org/webinar/.

This was the third webinar in our members-only Hot Topics webinar series, “The Revolution Will Be Open?” curated by David Lewis, Indiana University Purdue University Indiana, Dean Emeritus of the University Library and Michael Roy, Middlebury College, Dean of the Library. The recordings and presentation slides of the first two webinars in this series, “The 2.5% Commitment: Investing in Open” and “Beyond North America: Widening Access and Participation,” are available at https://duraspace.org/webinar/.

Our final webinar in this series, “How For-Profit Companies Can Be a Part of the Open Environment,” will be presented on December 5, 2018.  DuraSpace members will be invited to attend the webinar and participate live with the presenters.

Members of DuraSpace are among leaders of institutions from all over the world who share a belief that our digital scientific and cultural heritage should be preserved and made accessible for future generations. Members of DuraSpace have been invited to become part of a conversation that aims to begin an investigation into what it will take to sustain the emerging set of open technologies that underpin the open scholarly ecosystem we all depend on.

Our members are actively engaged in determining how to move forward towards a more open scholarly ecosystem. Attending Hot Topics webinars is one benefit that we offer our members to aid in collaborative consideration of common issues and potential solutions as an exclusive benefit of being a DuraSpace member.  Become a DuraSpace member today!

Ontocale Joins DuraSpace Service Provider (DSP) Program

DSpace news - ოთხ, 24/10/2018 - 18:25

DuraSpace is pleased to welcome Ontocale, as its newest participant in the DuraSpace Service Provider (DSP) program. Ontocale is a Certified DuraSpace Contributor offering VIVO services and the program’s third VIVO provider, joining Clarivate Analytics and Symplectic.

Brian Lowe, founder of Ontocale, has been a contributor to VIVO since 2006. Having been a developer at Cornell University and a semantic software development team lead during VIVO’s NIH-funded expansion to an open-source project, he brings a deep knowledge of the technology stack and community.

“We help you make the most out of VIVO, from harvesting data to taking advantage of their rich semantic structure for customized display and reporting. The goal is to give you the unique software features you need while building on and contributing to open community-developed data standards,” Lowe says.

The DSP program establishes relationships with service providers that wish to provide open source software services with the support of DuraSpace.

“Ontocale has been a terrific contributor in the VIVO community, in terms of code development and as a participant in our international events such as our DuraSpace-euroCRIS Interoperability Event in June,” says Erin Tripp, DuraSpace Interim CEO. “We are delighted to welcome Brian and his team to the DSP program.”

The goals of the DSP program include working more closely with open source service providers to promote the adoption of DuraSpace open technologies and celebrating the expertise and in-kind contributions of service providers as it propels the quality and functionality of our code-bases.

Established in 2009, DuraSpace is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing leadership and innovation for open technologies that promote durable, persistent access to digital data. More than eighteen hundred institutions use and help develop open source software in partnership with DuraSpace.
