EBLIDA and the Latvian Library Association are conducted an online survey on non-formal and informal learning activities in public libraries across Europe.

This survey was open for response to all public libraries.

What was the survey about?

There are 65,000 public libraries in the EU. Many of them offer non-formal and informal learning services and tend to have developed expertise in these matters, though the topic has not yet been studied in depth. As part of the Library Advocacy for EU Project, together with the Latvian Library Association (LLA), we (EBLIDA) are now surveying public libraries to collect data on non-formal and informal learning activities in libraries. We will use the results when advocating on the role of public libraries in non-formal education and the contribution of libraries to the EU Education and Training Strategy 2020.

How was the survey presented?

The survey is divided into 4 parts:

  • Part A focusses on non-formal learning activities through a list of 12 questions;
  • Part B focusses on informal learning activities through a list of 7 questions;
  • Part C focusses on the impact of those activities through a list of 3 questions;
  • Part D requests factual data on your library.

 

The overall aim of the survey is to collect data and evidence on:

  • Numbers of trained library visitors and numbers of non-formal & informal learning events;
  • Main target groups in non-formal and informal learning activities;
  • Scope of partnerships with third parties in training delivery;
  • Certification of non-formal learning outcomes;
  • Most successful non-formal learning events delivered by public libraries;
  • Impact of non-formal and informal learning activities on citizens and communities.
