Implement a methodology to identify and register information about projects to support the Sustainable Development Goals by libraries from LAC region
Each year, the IFLA Professional Committee approves the funding of a number of projects proposed by the IFLA Professional Units. Applications for funding can only be accepted from the Officers of an IFLA Section, or from the Committee on Standards on behalf of IFLA Standards Review Groups. After evaluation of 60 projects, we are pleased to announce that our project "Implement a methodology to identify and register information about projects to support the Sustainable Development Goals by libraries from LAC Region" has been selected.
Mapping of the Latin American and Caribbean Libraries initiative in support of the National Development Plan - Agenda 2030
We are inviting all librarian associations or colleges from every Latin American and Caribbean country to participate in this project that aims to integrate all of our regions as we did in 2016. We would be very pleased if your institution plays an active role in this project, assuming the task of analyzing the situation in your country, compiling examples together with national, public, university and specialized libraries and updating the "Directory of Latin American and Caribbean libraries activities in support of the National Development Plan - Agenda 2030" that we are building in IFLA LAC.
Impact of the copyright legislation on libraries in Latin America and the Caribbean
The IFLA Standing Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean (IFLA LAC) is conducting a project called “Impact of the copyright legislation on libraries in Latin America and the Caribbean” which aims at identifying and recording the main difficulties, problems and situations that libraries are facing in the work situation and when offering quality services in the digital era. For this integrated project we are inviting the Library association, or a college of librarians or the National Library from each country of the region (in this sequence).
We would like that all LAC National Libraries Associations play an active role in this research, by conducting the analysis of your country’s situation, and finding examples, together with the national, public, university and specialized libraries, in order to present a report that summarizes the field research findings. If your Association does not have a Copyright Committee, and no member is proficient in the subject, you can invite an expert from outside your association to work with your team, or to completely take over the task.
