IFLA to build libraries’ capacity to positively influence digital information policy through new International Advocacy grant | World Library and Information Congress #wlic2014 | Trucs de bibliothécaires | Scoop.it

"New grant will help build capacity within the profession to advocate for positive policy change to support public access to digital information in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Global Libraries Initiative.

 

LYON, – 19 August 2014

 

World Library and Information Congress in Lyon – The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) today announced a new grant for international advocacy activities in support of access to digital information. The investment will develop libraries’ ability to react to emerging issues in the digital environment, increase awareness within the public library community of the link between this emerging environment and their work, and create capacity to undertake advocacy activities in support of policy change.

Public access to ICTs, copyright and licensing or eBooks and eLending are just some of the issues being tackled by policymakers at national, regional and international levels, often without satisfactory results for libraries and their users. As a result, libraries can often find themselves having to work in policy environments that are not sensitive to their issues and services to the public in the digital information environment are degraded."

Lyon, bibliothèque de la cité

Lyon, bibliothèque de la cité | Trucs de bibliothécaires | Scoop.it

Sur le mur de la bibliothèque de la cité, les acteurs sont des livres dont les auteurs sont nés ou ont travaillé dans la région lyonnaise.
Près de 500 références et des extraits de textes représentent, dans un faux désordre, notre patrimoine littéraire.
Rabelais, Louise Labé, Voltaire, mais aussi Reverzy, Frédéric Dard, Annie Salager...… tous en profitent pour adresser un clin d'oeil aux bouquinistes, juste en bas, sur le quai.
La fresque murale est une spécificité lyonnaise. Pionnière en la matière, la ville répand aujourd’hui son savoir-faire : CitéCréation, coopérative d’artistes lyonnaise créée en 1978, réalise des fresques et trompe-l’œil dans le monde entier.
