IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2019

August 24, 2019 – August 29, 2019 all-day

“Libraries: Dialogue for Change.”  The Library and Information Science international community is invited to discuss, re-examine, re-think and re-interpret the role of libraries as promoters of change. Dialogue is the utmost expression of democracy, the basis for the freedom of expression and information and thus, the gear for a better future. Libraries serve as open, free, democratic, inclusive and participatory meeting places and mediators between knowledge and people. Programs include a keynote address by Donna Scheeder on Informing Legislative Debate: The Role of Government Libraries, and programs on the Library of the Court of Justice of the European Union and on Copyright Education – Information Literacy.
