IFLA Global Vision on the move: Asia Oceania passes the torch to Europe!

IFLA - ოთხ, 05/07/2017 - 15:54

The IFLA Global Vision Asia Oceania regional workshop just took place on 28-29 June 2017 in Singapore. As part of a series of workshops held by IFLA around the world since April, 32 participants from 27 countries in the Asia Oceania region were convened to discuss together how a united and connected library field would look like in the future.

One more stop in the Global Vision regional discussions: Madrid, Spain here we come!

After two days of motivating and though-provoking discussions, our colleagues from the Asia Oceania region asked IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner to convey the following messages to our colleagues in Europe, thus passing the IFLA Global Vision discussion torch from Singapore to Madrid, Spain:

Connect with Asia Oceania! It is an opportunity for you to work with us and an opportunity for us to work with Europe.

Lose your inhibitions. It is going to be an extremely participatory and energizing experience!

Dream big!

It was an eye-opening experience. Madrid, be open, be engaged, and be brave!

Get involved with workshop organisers and see the positive results!

The next and final workshop in this round of IFLA Global Vision Regional Discussions will take place in Madrid, Spain from 5 to 6 July. We look forward to continuing this Global Vision journey in Europe!

Session 137 Understanding Your Library from the Inside Out: A Workshop in Library Ethnography for User Assessment - Social Science Libraries with Africa Section

 

Workshop Location: Wroclaw University Library. ul. F. Joliot-Curie 12, 50-383 Wrocław, Poland

 

This off-site workshop will focus on helping librarians to understand and use ethnographic research methods--long used for cultural anthropology research--to better understand their libraries, their users, and how their services and collections are used. The workshop includes presentations by 2 leaders in the field: Lynn S. Connaway, Senior Research Scientist and Director of User Research at OCLC and Celia Emmelheinz, Anthropology and Qualitative Research Librarian at UC Berkeley. Through interactive/hands-on activities, the workshop participants will explore an “ethnographic toolkit” they can use to better understand the context in which their users engage with their library and its resources. Topics covered include learning how to ask good research questions; honing participation and observation skills; engaging patrons in research through mapping and diaries; coding and interpreting findings, and using results to spark deeper engagement with the user community.

The workshop requires a registration and is limited to 30 participants. Lunch will be served.

“It’s fantastic to see how library leaders of 27 countries from Asia and Oceania work together for the future of a united library field. There is so much positive energy and vast experience - which makes me confident that we are on the right way.”

Full details of the announcement: https://www.ifla.org/node/11477

Communicating effectively is critical for an international and distributed organization like IFLA. IFLA’s Professional Units (Sections, Special Interest Groups, Divisions, Strategic Programmes and Core Activities) have, by definition, a responsibility to improve worldwide communication within their realm of expertise. In doing so, they should also be keeping IFLA Members and others informed about how they are doing this, inviting input to their work, and seeking suggestions for new ways to work.

Every year the Professional Committee recognizes one or more of the IFLA Professional Units for their outstanding communication activities.

The IFLA Professional Unit Communication Award focuses on IFLA communication activities of any IFLA Professional Unit(s) – Divisions, Sections, Special Interest Groups, Strategic Programmes and Core Activities. To identify a winner of the award, the Professional Committee invites nominations to be submitted to IFLA Headquarters by the deadline of 31 July 2017.

Nomination Form

La Visión Global de IFLA sigue avanzando: LAC pasa la antorcha a la región de Asia y Oceanía

IFLA - სამ, 27/06/2017 - 15:26

El cuarto taller regional de la Visión Global de IFLA, esta vez para la región de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC), se realizó del 8 al 9 de junio de 2017 en Buenos Aires, Argentina. La IFLA reunió a 27 altos representantes de asociaciones de bibliotecas y bibliotecas nacionales para analizar cómo los desafíos del futuro pueden ser anticipados y abordados por un sector bibliotecario unido y conectado.

La discusión de Visión Global solo está comenzando: ¡Próxima parada en Singapur!

Después de dos días de inspiración y de provocadoras discusiones, los colegas de la región de ALC pidieron al Secretario General de la IFLA, Gerald Leitner, que transmitiera los siguientes mensajes a los colegas de Asia y Oceanía:

Siento que llevo una maleta de herramientas que llevo a mi país para mejorar el sector bibliotecario.

Este taller es una oportunidad de conocer y replicar en los países.

Esta es una gran manera de romper barreras.

Mente abierta para los colegas de Singapur y un abrazo.

Quiero informar aquí que estoy muy emocionado, profundamente emocionado. Tengo mucha esperanza de lo que va a ocurrir. Creo que en IFLA puede haber un antes y después. No sé si antes IFLA había pensado o sonado esto. Tengo la confianza, la seguridad, de que esto va a ser un gran éxito. Estoy muy contento y muy esperanzado de que a partir de esta nueva etapa se harán grandes cosas, incluyéndonos también a todos nosotros como protagonistas de esta época.

Esta visión de IFLA de ir a las regiones de conocer qué nos pasa por nuestra realidad y sobre esa cuestión de escucharnos, de poner la oreja y después resolverlo, me parece que le da a IFLA una autoridad para tomar decisiones que es mucho más grande que la que tenía antes. Ese conocimiento real y cabal de lo que pensamos cada uno, le va a dar a IFLA cuando votemos, una autoridad intelectual y moral para lo que viene.

¡Trabajen mucho! Todo lo que verán en estos días es producto de mucha gente, de mucho trabajo y mucho amor.

Participantes del taller regional de la Visión Global de IFLA en Buenos Aires, Argentina

El próximo Taller Regional de Visión Global de IFLA tendrá lugar del 28 al 29 de junio de 2017 en Singapur. ¡Esperamos con ansias continuar este emocionante viaje de la Visión Global de IFLA en la región de Asia y Oceanía!
