Since 1992, the community Hub of Libraries in Europe!

Striving towards an equitable, democratic and sustainable society

The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations is an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.

SDG9 - oriented projects and Best Practices

Maker Faires, the social events sprouting engineering-oriented pursuits organized by the Make magazine, are often organized in libraries. The National Library of Norway started working on Artificial Intelligence schemes; this makes citizens familiar with new technologies against any neo-luddite inclinations.

Libraries should become a permanent infrastructure encouraging innovation in a social context. This model of “social” library should be established in collaboration with advanced institutes and technological centres. “Digital Skills for SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) in Bulgaria” is an educational project where the regional libraries of Plovdiv, Smolyan and Stara Zagora districts become third place and offer equal access to information and communication, lifelong learning, collaboration with SME workers and their families. Two aspects raise the profile of this project. The first is that libraries work in partnership with the Bulgarian Union of Small and Medium Enterprises; the second is that the project is funded by the 2014-2020 European Social Fund, one of the European Structural and Investment Funds.

And finally, mention should be made again of the Lithuanian initiative of producing 3D printed face shields for healthcare workers – resulting from collaboration with the Lithuanian Robotics School.
