ENSULIB well represented at the “Let’s Go Green!” the 1st International Green Library Conference in Zagreb, Croatia 8-10 November 2018

IFLA - Sat, 24/11/2018 - 14:07

The National and University Library (NUL) in Zagreb has an environmental project with the slogan, “Green Library for Green Croatia.” In cooperation with the Croatian Library Association / Working Group for Green Libraries, the NUL arranged the first Green Library Conference which was held in Zagreb 8-10 November 2018. During two days, participants discussed diverse subjects such as library architecture, digital collections and environmental work in school libraries. The message was clear: there must be an environmental focus in whatever we do in libraries.

ENSULIB members were well represented. Keynote speaker Petra Hauke (Berlin, Germany) introduced how libraries around the world have answered the UN’s Agenda for Sustainable Development. Keynote speaker and Convener Harri Sahavirta (Helsinki, Finland) attempted to answer the question “Why is it so difficult for libraries to be sustainable?” Invited speaker Philippe Colomb (Paris, France) scrutinized how to increase librarians’ environmental awareness. Finally, Andrea Kaufmann (Berlin, Germany) introduced the Green Library Network in Germany.

ENSULIB wishes to thank the organizers of this first Green Library Conference which showed that there is critical need and an abundance of interest in green libraries around the world. The conference had participants from all over Europe and, for example, from India, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, and Galapagos Islands (Ecuador).

A Croatian report with a series of photos is available

Presentations of the conference are forthcoming

The 2030 Arab Librarians: Libraries and Development in the Arabic-Speaking World

IFLA - Wed, 21/11/2018 - 21:29

As part of our International Advocacy Programme, IFLA supported a project led by the Arab Federation for Libraries and Information (AFLI) to develop and deliver an online course on libraries and the SDGs.

​The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide an affirmation of the role of libraries in providing access to information.

They are also an opportunity to get onto the policy agenda. Libraries benefit when decision-makers understand the power of information, and the work of libraries in ensuring that all can benefit, leading to better results in education, health, innovation, and across the board.

Following IFLA’s call for projects to receive support, the Arab Federation for Libraries and Information proposed an exciting aiming to raise awareness and build capacity on an international scale.

The project is now complete, and the report is now available.

 

How it Worked

The programme combined both digital and physical elements. First of all, 31 participants from 11 different countries were accepted onto an eLearning course.

Materials were produced, as well as adapted and translated from other sources, in order to provide complete and relevant content. Participants learnt about the fundamentals of advocacy, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and reflected on the situations in their own countries.

Special forum sessions allowed for open discussion, and the development of workbooks and action plans. There were also two expert webinars, sharing ideas from key figures in the Arab library field.

Finally, 11 participants took part in a workshop on 28-29 July in Egypt, learning about story-telling, impact assessment, and how to develop plans to deliver on the SDGs. In turn, they shared their own expertise about projects in their home libraries, so that others could learn.  

 

Impacts

The organisers took care to survey levels of knowledge around the SDGs, and attitudes to library advocacy before and after the event.

There was a major increase in awareness of the SDGs, as well as a greater sense of the role that libraries and library associations can play. The materials from the course are available online for others to use, allowing the work done to benefit others.

Demonstrating the impact of the practical advice given during the course, the programme also led to a series of initiatives across the region for seminars, training courses, collaborations, and support for both sustainability and the unemployed.  

While not everything went to plan, there have also been valuable lessons in how to train and share knowledge, which will also put the library field in the Arab world on a stronger footing in years to come.

Tearing down myths around the South African Copyright Amendment Bill

IFLA - Tue, 20/11/2018 - 13:40

IFLA has been working over the past months to support its South African members in advocating around ongoing copyright reforms. These promise to offer librarians more legal certainty and opportunities to provide excellent services to their users, and so support education, research, and access to culture. 

Last Thursday's approval of the South African Copyright Amendment Bill in the Portfolio Committee on Trade and Industry represents a welcome step forwards. However, recognising that there are still a number of further stages to come, it is important to continue to maintain the momentum in favour of access, learning, innovation and heritage. 

In particular, it is important to provide clarification around a number of points raised in the discussions so far which, unfortunately, risk creting confusion. 

In particular, we would like to underline the following points:

Supporting libraries contributes to the health of the overall book sector

Libraries play an essential role not just in bringing books and other documents to the attention of the public, but also in developing the writers and researchers of the future. As such, in addition to the money paid to acquire content, libraries make a major contribution to marketing and discovery, as well as to the sustainability – and inclusiveness – of the book economy.  Many authors are librarians and many librarians are authors too. The strong support by many authors for libraries around the world bears testament to this.  

The need for reforms that address exceptions and limitations for libraries, education and research is well known, and has long been recognised by the government

It has been forty years since South Africa’s copyright law regarding libraries, education and research was last updated, and twenty since the library sector has been calling for modernisation. While the original statement by the government may have been focused on artists and publishers, the inclusion of libraries, education and research in the bill constitutes firm recognition of the need to support learning and innovation and to positively address the UN sustainable development goals. 

The proposed reform is compatible with the Three-Step Test

As highlighted in legal advice formally provided by Dr Tobias Schonwetter to the committee recently, as well as that of the State Legal Counsel, the fair use clauses proposed in the bill are consistent with the Berne Convention. This opinion has also been confirmed by the State Legal Advisor. The fact that a growing number of countries internationally have implemented such provisions without facing challenges under the Dispute Settlement Mechanism at the WTO only confirms this. Elsewhere, the Australian Law Reform Commission has underlined that fair use is compatible with the Berne Convention. 

The proposed reform is compatible with the WIPO Marrakesh Treaty

Despite claims to the contrary, the Bill complies fully with the Marrakesh Treaty, notably as regards the need for those helping people with print disabilities to be prescribed, the need to carry out such activities on a non-profit basis. Indeed, this bill will enable South Africa to ratify the Treaty and provide a model for implementation of the Treaty to other countries.

Fair use is fair

There are many claims about the impact of fair use which unfortunately ignore the fact that it is based on a careful assessment of the impact on the rightholder. In particular, it is clear that such uses cannot cause unjustified prejudice to the interests of authors and publishers by limiting their ability to commercialise their works. Suggestions that it will lead to the systematic copying and making available of commercially available works are misleading and a distraction. The fact that rightholders frequently win cases in Fair Use jurisdictions shows that it provides adequate protections against prejudicial uses of works.  

Tackling the challenge of author incomes requires a holistic look at how revenues are earned

The situation faced by authors – in particular those who do not benefit from tenured positions in universities – is certainly a concern, not least to libraries. However, meaningful action to increase author incomes depends on taking a wider view at all of the factors at play, not least contracts (already the subject of legislation in the European Union), and other revenue streams (on which WIPO is launching work, and which is the subject of a major new research project in Australia).

Acknowledging that the publication of the government’s impact assessment would certainly help offer clarity, we believe that on most of the questions currently being raised by international and local rightsholder organisations as a reason for delaying progress on this essential legislation, there is already clarity, and so no need to hesitate further.

Green Library Awards Reflections Published

IFLA - Fri, 16/11/2018 - 17:34

ENSULIB is pleased to share that papers presented from 2016 to 2018 and Green Library Award reflections are cumulated as an article: “Exemplars, Educators, Enablers: Libraries and Sustainability: How libraries contribute to sustainability” by Stephen Wyber, Manager, Policy and Advocacy, IFLA.

This article draws together examples of how libraries are using this commitment – and this potential – to deliver on sustainability in three key ways by:

·       showcasing sustainable building techniques and services;

·       promoting understanding and action around sustainability in their communities; and

·       supporting new research into sustainability.

DSpace news - Thu, 15/11/2018 - 18:47

DuraSpace presents a Community Webinar, DSpace for Research Data Management: Fordatis – a DSpace Solution

On Tuesday, November 20, 2018 (10:00am ET/4:00p.m. CET convert to your timezone), join Andrea Wuchner and Dirk Eisengräber-Pabst of Fraunhofer, Europe’s largest application orientated research organization, when they present, “DSpace for Research Data Management: Fordatis – a DSpace Solution.”

The recent Open Data project “FORDATIS aims to establish a research data repository not only under the FAIR principles, but also that is well-connected to both the publication repository and internal data management systems.  In this webinar, “Fordatis – a DSpace Solution” the presenters will discuss the issues of customization and implementation of an open access research data repository drawing from their experiences.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s research activities are conducted by 72 institutes and research units spread  throughout Germany. As all 72 institutes have their own requirements, needs and they’re focused on different research activities, the challenge for the team working on the Fordatis project was to develop a solution that could collect different use cases, address the various needs and meet the diverse requirements.

The presentation will highlight their requirements and use cases, why they decided on DSpace, how they customized DSpace to meet their needs, the lessons they learned and future plans.  The one-hour webinar will conclude with a question answer session.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Prochaine réunion sur le droit d'auteur à l'organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle : impliquez-vous !

IFLA - Thu, 15/11/2018 - 18:13

Le droit d'auteur est un élément central dans le travail des bibliothèques, et c’est pourquoi l’IFLA est un défenseur actif de meilleures lois du droit d’auteur. Notre engagement auprès de l'Organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle (OMPI) en est un élément essentiel.

Le comité du droit d'auteur de l'OMPI (le SCCR) se réunit deux fois par an et a la capacité de légiférer sur plusieurs aspects. Le sujet des exceptions et limitations au droit d'auteur en faveur des bibliothèques, archives et musées est à l'ordre du jour. La prochaine réunion est en approche : elle aura lieu du 26 au 30 novembre. Des représentants de l'IFLA y seront présents. Nous partagerons des informations sur les discussions.

Pourquoi c'est important ?

Lors de la dernière réunion du SCCR, un plan d'action visant à organiser le travail autour des exceptions et limitations au droit d'auteur en faveur des bibliothèques, archives, musées, de la recherche et de l'éducation a été adopté. L'IFLA demandera que tous les éléments de ce plan, tels que les réunions régionales et la conférence finale, fournissent des éléments de preuve nécessaires pour définir comment l'OMPI peut générer des progrès concrets pour nos institutions, notamment grâce à un potentiel instrument international.

Pourquoi l'IFLA a besoin de votre aide ?

Le SCCR est composé de représentants de tous les états membres des Nations Unies. Une partie importante de notre travail de plaidoyer doit donc avoir lieu au niveau national, où les états définissent leur position. Vos représentants doivent savoir que leurs bibliothèques et citoyens souhaitent qu’ils s’engagent activement pour faire avancer ce dossier.

Notre succès au niveau mondial dépend en grande partie des efforts déployés au niveau national.

Passez à l’action !

C'est pourquoi nous vous encourageons à agir. Commencez par contacter vos représentants pour leur faire savoir que vous soutenez la position de l’IFLA. Les personnes responsables sont soit dans le Ministère de la Culture, soit dans le bureau du droit d'auteur ou de la propriété intellectuelle. Envoyez une lettre pour expliquer pourquoi ce sujet est important pour vous. Faites-nous savoir si vous avez besoin d'un brouillon.

Pour en savoir plus sur l’OMPI, consultez notre guide «Découvrir l’OMPI» et regardez notre webinaire sur le sujet.

Si vous suivez régulièrement les droits d’auteur, vous voudrez peut-être aussi vous inscrire à la liste mail du réseau du comité de droit d’auteur de l’IFLA. L'IFLA utilise cette liste pour partager des informations sur les réformes du droit d'auteur et contribuer à plaider en faveur de meilleures lois aux niveaux national et régional, comme nous l'avons fait en Colombie ou en Afrique du Sud, entre autres.

IFLA - Thu, 15/11/2018 - 18:11

El derecho de autor es un elemento central del trabajo de las bibliotecas, y esta es la razón por la que la IFLA es un defensor activo de mejores leyes de derecho de autor. Nuestro compromiso con la Organización Mundial de la Propiedad Intelectual (OMPI) es una parte clave de esto.

El comité de derechos de autor de la OMPI (SCCR) se reúne dos veces al año y tiene capacidad para legislar en varios asuntos. El tema de las excepciones y limitaciones al derecho de autor para bibliotecas, archivos y museos está actualmente sobre la mesa para discusión. La próxima reunión se acerca: del 26 al 30 de noviembre. La IFLA estará presente, así que esté atento para más información.

¿Por qué es importante?

En la última reunión del SCCR, se adoptó un plan de acción para organizar el trabajo en torno a las excepciones y limitaciones al derecho de autor para bibliotecas, archivos, museos, investigación y educación. La IFLA solicitará que todos los elementos de este plan, como las reuniones regionales y la conferencia final, se centren en proporcionar la evidencia necesaria para definir cómo la OMPI puede impulsar progreso concreto para nuestras instituciones, en particular a través de un instrumento internacional.

¿Por qué la IFLA necesita su ayuda?

El SCCR está compuesto por representantes de todos los estados miembros de las Naciones Unidas. Por lo tanto, una parte importante de nuestro trabajo de incidencia tiene que ocurrir a nivel nacional, donde cada estado define su posición.

Sus representantes deben saber que las bibliotecas y ciudadanos de su país desean que el gobierno apoye progreso en la OMPI en el tema de excepciones y limitaciones.

Nuestro éxito a nivel global depende en gran medida de los esfuerzos a nivel nacional.

¡Pase a la acción!

Por eso le animamos a que pase a la acción. Comience por ponerse en contacto con sus representantes para informarles de que su organización apoya la posición de IFLA. Las personas responsables del tema están probablemente en el Ministerio de Cultura o en la Oficina de Derechos de Autor o de Propiedad Intelectual. Envíe una carta para explicar por qué este tema es importante para el sector. Háganos saber si necesita un borrador de carta.

Puede encontrar más información sobre lo que está en juego en la OMPI en nuestra guía "Descubrir la OMPI" o a través de nuestro webinar sobre el tema disponible en la página web.

Si le interesa especialmente el tema de los derechos de autor, le recomendamos suscribirse a la lista de email de la red del comité de derecho de autor de la ILFA. La IFLA utiliza esta lista para compartir noticias sobre reformas de derechos de autor y para ayuda a abogar para mejores leyes a nivel nacional y regional, como hicimos en Colombia o Sudáfrica, entre otros. Animamos a los miembros a compartir preguntas, actualizaciones y noticias de sus países con el resto de los participantes.
