M&M Member Named Division IV Chair

IFLA - სამ, 14/05/2019 - 23:49

Catharina Isberg has been named the new Chair of IFLA Division IV and new member of IFLA Governing Board for the period 2019-2021. Catharina is also a member of the IFLA Management and Marketing Standing Committee.

"With the global vision and the ongoing IFLA strategy work, IFLA is undergoing a tremendous change," Catharina says. "I am so happy to be part of this work. The Division Chair role gives me the opportunity to work on a more strategic level with IFLA. During the last 8 years I have been involved in the CPDWL (Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning) SC and in different roles worked for the section and in collaboration with many other sections. One example is the coaching programme in which CPDWL is collaborating with Management & Marketing, where we offer coaching possibilities to WLIC attendants. I really look forward to joining the Management & Marketing SC in August, at the same time as I will become Division Chair and part of the IFLA Governing Board and Professional Committee."

Record of a great mid-term in Tampere

IFLA - სამ, 14/05/2019 - 10:50

The Public Library Standing Committee (PLSC) held its mid-term meeting in Finland  12-13 March. Our packed program included participation  in  a one day seminar, The Marrakesh Treaty in Action: Implementing the treaty and more ideas for accessible digital reading organised by Celia Library, IFLA Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities, and the Finnish Library Association. This gave our members an appreciation of the Treaty and how it impacts on our services.  The seminar was held at the magical Oodi Helsinki Central Library and we were treated to a tour of this wonderful place before we headed north to Tampere for our meeting.

Our host, PLSC member Pirkko Lindberg and her staff made us incredibly welcome in snowy Tampere where we gained an understanding of this historic city. Our meeting at the Tampere Library allowed us to discuss the many projects in which the SC is involved including the IFLA/Systematic Public Library of the Year; the review of the Public Library Manifesto and our programs fo the WLIC in Athens. The Minutes of the meeting are now available to download.

As a fitting finale we were traeted to a traditional smoke sauna followed by ice-swimming and the (not so traditional) karaoke! Is it any wonder people are fighting to be part of the PLSC!
