Report of the 26th EBLIDA Annual Council Meeting & EBLIDA-NAPLE Conference

EBLIDA 2018

 

The 2018 EBLIDA NAPLE Annual Council and Conference was held in Strasbourg (France) on 30 and 31 May 2018.

The conference theme Libraries bridging borders attracted a great number of participants with almost 100 people attending the event.

The programme kicked off with a real prospective view from the keynote speaker Prof. Chris Welch  (ISU)

Followed by an active panel discussion with Kathrin Merkle (CoE), Jukka Relander (Outgoing EBLIDA President) and Tine Vind (NAPLE Chair).

The second session provided practical insight into the role of librarians in a cross border environment, and the last session offered a good variety of workshops to choose from.
 
The third part of the conference was split into 3 different workshops where participants were actively engaged in sharing ideas, best practices and experiences.

The workshops namely addressed:

  • Regional collaboration driving global visibility to a worldwide audience (OCLC)
  • Copyright literacy in a cross-border environment, a workshop to improve copyright literacy in European libraries. For this one, read the report from Jane Secker here.
  • The Multicultural Library, a model for Europe, an Erasmus + strategic partnership workshop to exchange practices and ideas.

 

To conclude, the incoming EBLIDA President Ton van Vlimmeren thanked all the participants for an excellent conference and announced the 2 candidates for next year conference: Ireland and Croatia.
