Today I make a presentation on the Pre-conference for Decision Makers at theIFLA President´s Meeting 2014 in Helsinki.
The title is "Bringing Libraries on the agenda - a political Question" It's a introduction to The Danish Library Association and its unique organizational structure that involves both politicians and professionals.
In the Danish Library Association we represent one of the more radical solutions to achieving this political approach to working for libraries: We have brought the political decision-makers and the library professionals together in the same association. The President is always politicians and local politicians always constitute the majority. Therefore, we have a constant dialogue between professionals and politicians about libraries. Not only the economy, also how they should be developed and which need citizens has.
