Dear Library and Information Science (LIS) Friends!
In these days, to stay relevant, connected and committed to the cause of the LIS user community, IFLA has formulated a GLOBAL Vision to help libraries be more connected and stronger than ever before.
What are the core values of libraries?
What are libraries exceptionally good at?
What are the main challenges to libraries?
What would be the characteristics of a united library field? ....
IFLA’s Global Vision discussion brings together thousands of representatives of the library field worldwide to explore how a connected library field can meet the challenges of the future.
Please help shape the future of the library field and be involved in a truly worldwide brainstorm, strengthen it by your support.
The results of your voting will inform IFLA’s Global Vision report – a Roadmap (which will be published in early 2018) to help define the agenda (with Concrete Work Plans) to create a more united LIS field.
IFLA’s Global Vision is an important chance to contribute and influence the future of the LIS field.
Face-to-face and online, future-oriented conversations will be taking place throughout the year. To make this a true global brainstorm, IFLA wants to see participation from all countries in the world.
To that end, share your input by sending IFLA a simple, template-based report and let the world know about your engagement using the Communications package (along with a presentation and a report template have been prepared):
When carrying out communication your GLOBAL Vision activities, you can take the following actions:
