On 10 May in The Hague at the National Library of the Netherlands, the 24th joint conference EBLIDA-NAPLE of the European Bureau of Library Information and Documentation Association (EBLIDA) and the National Authorities of Public Library in Europe (NAPLE) took place.
Inspired by the EU-presidency themes, especially the Union’s aim to empower and protect all citizens, the programme accommodated libraries’ actual topics and concerns of opening up libraries to the outside world.
Inspiring keynote speeches and round-table preceded interactive work sessions on cutting-edge issues such as Open Access (data, government, etc.) from different perspectives, Skills and lifelong-learning (highlighting the role of libraries), Advocacy for libraries (from national to global level with a case study on eLending and among others, the question of copyright).
The work sessions were followed by a wrapping-up and new perspectives on the future.
Read the Report: Libraries empowering Europe!
Powerful, dynamic, filled with information and thoughtful & interesting speeches, amazing, compelling, surprising and funny (at times).
Enthusiastic, valuable, exceptional, intelligent, bold and high in spirit.
Friendly, considerate, efficient & generous
And finally The Hague:
Charming & sunny!
