There is a vacancy at IFLA Headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands for the position of:

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA)

IFLA Headquarters
1 February 2019

Policy and Research Officer

IFLA - პარ, 01/02/2019 - 18:12

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Headquarters is looking for a Policy and Research Officer to work on digital issues, as part of a dynamic international team. As the global organisation for libraries, IFLA has a role both in promoting the contribution of libraries to development through access to information globally, and in supporting its own members to fulfil their potential.

Technology plays an increasingly central role in the way that we create, share, access and use information today. In many cases, it has enabled libraries to offer new services and opportunities to their users, and move closer to the goal of equitable and meaningful access to information for all. However, it has also brought with it challenges, both for those on the wrong side of the digital divide, and for people who are connected and faced with uncertainty and concerns. There is a pressing need to ensure that everyone – including librarians – has the possibility, knowledge and skills necessary to make the most of the possibilities on offer. The successful candidate will work to make this happen.

Location

IFLA Headquarters is located in The Hague (next to The Hague Central Station) in The Netherlands.

Key areas of Responsibility

Under the direction of the Manager Policy and Advocacy, the successful candidate will be the lead policy and research officer on questions around technology and digital issues and their impacts on the library field. Your work will contribute to the effectiveness of IFLA’s advocacy and lobbying work internationally, as well as help the global library field to understand technology trends and their implications.

To do this, you will engage in international discussions, prepare research and responses to consultations, support overall evidence gathering around the contribution of internet access through libraries to development, and provide materials and guidance to members.

Qualifications and Experience
  • Excellent knowledge of technology issues;
  • A strong understanding of library and information services and related policy issues;
  • Strong research skills;
  • Outstanding communication skills in English, both written and oral, and fully competent in using the web and social media;
  • Have a sense of diplomacy and the ability to convey this in writing;
  • Demonstrable interpersonal skills, able to relate to people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds;
  • Demonstrable understanding of the policy process, including policy development;
  • Demonstrable project management skills;
  • A commitment to participative management practices, workplace diversity and to working effectively within a team environment;
  • Experience in working in a distributed, international team.
Additionally, the candidate will have:
  • Experience in working within an international NGO organisation;
  • A Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field;
  • Proficiency in one of the other official languages of IFLA (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish).
Salary

The gross monthly salary offered will be EUR 3,660 per month in line with the Collective Agreement of Public Libraries in The Netherlands. You will also receive a holiday allowance (8% of your annual salary), an end of year bonus and enjoy 25 days of holidays per year. You will also participate in IFLA’s group pension scheme.

Closing date

The closing date is 22 February 2019. Due to the high volume of applications we are expecting to receive, interested candidates are advised to submit their applications as soon as possible.

How to apply

Please send your CV and motivation letter addressing the responsibilities and skills required for the position in English to vacancies@ifla.org. Only candidates with valid documentation to work in The Netherlands will be considered.

IFLA joins the call for deletion of articles 11 and 13 in the EU copyright reform

IFLA - ხუთ, 31/01/2019 - 19:00

This week, 89 organisations, defenders of freedom of expression and freedom of access to information, co-signed a letter asking for the deletion of controversial articles in the proposed European copyright directive. IFLA, who had already openly underlined the threat posed by these provisions to access to information, is among the signatories. There is right now momentum for their deletion.

Last week, disagreement between Germany and France on Article 13 lay behind a delay in the supposedly last round of discussions on the copyright directive. The Council of Ministers – made up of Member States – could therefore not adopt its mandate to go to the last negotiations with the Parliament and the Commission.

While these two countries disagree on a specific aspect of Article 13, which would force internet platforms to filter all user-uploaded content, several others have called for its deletion. They rightly argue that there has been too much disagreement along the way, proving that there are deep and fundamental flaws in both this, and in Article 11, which provides a new right for press publishers.   

IFLA has consistently advocated for solutions that would make these articles less bad for research and library services; however, technical discussions are over, and although research repositories are more or less exempted, the solution is not yet good enough.

With very positive provisions having been agreed in other parts of the Directive, it is mainly these two articles that would make the Directive a failed attempt to adapt Europe’s copyright to the digital age and to a harmonised digital market. We are hoping that decisionmakers will listen to our call.

Read the joint letter.

IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto 1999 into Farsi

The IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto 1999 is now also available in Farsi. Farsi is one of the Western Iranian languages within the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European language family.

The Manifesto is now vailable in 35 languages and maybe the most translated official IFLA document.

Although the Manifeto is not outdated, the Joint IASL/IFLA Committee is working on an update.
