“Leading the way: Libraries as Motors of Change” IFLA President Meeting in Barcelona

40896223892_f799c7e063_qOn 19 March 2018 in Barcelona I have participated to the IFLA President’s Meeting under the theme: “Leading the way: Libraries as Motors of Change”.

President Gloria Perez affirms: “Libraries do not need to be the victims of change. They do not have to sprint to keep up with change. They can drive change”.

IFLA is on the journey, ready to move, changing internally to deliver our mission, libraries are motors of change, pillars of digital development, supporting free speech and access to information.

The Secretary General Gerald Leitner has stressed that the main finding of the Global Vision Project is unity: Librarians around the world share common values and are united in their goals. There was input from more than 31,000 participants from 213 countries. The “Global Vision Report Summary” presents 10 highlights paired with 10 opportunities. Following the President’s Meeting there were 2 days of workshop activities   for the follow up of the Project.

After the introduction, the meeting has been organized in 4 sessions with the participation of external experts who have brought a critical contribution to the discussion on the transformation of libraries. The sessions are:
Foresight Session: Looking to the Future
Session I: Building Support in a Time of Austerity
Session II: Building Bridges to Deliver New Services
Session III: New Models for the Networked Age
