Knowledge Café - IFLA WLIC Athens 2019 Highlights and Dublin 2020
Updated: Jan 20, 2020
The 7th Knowledge Café was held at the 2019 WLIC in Athens, Greece. This year’s theme was “Change, Literacy: Digital, Collaborative, Creative.” This was an interactive session using twelve round tables and facilitators with a number of different topics such as “Developing new communication tools: keeping up with advances in technology”; “How library spaces affect learning”; “Managing staff in tough and uncertain times”; “Developing library leaders of the future”; and “Creative uses of social media in libraries.” This is just a sample of the topics – there were many more. A full report with summaries is available here.
Please join us at the eighth Knowledge Café at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Dublin Ireland (August 15-21, 2020). The topic is “Continuous learning in a global, dynamic and ever-changing world.” The world is constantly changing. Librarians and information professionals are facing disruptive change in their organizations and those they serve. How do we embrace and prepare for a constant state of learning new skills and tools? Join us to explore and share strategies, best practices and new ideas with colleagues from around the world.
