The Spirit of Europe in international Forum (sold out)


Speaker: Vincent Bonnet

EBLIDA director
Moderator: Aldo Pirola, EBLIDA EC

Summary: While EBLIDA campaigns at the European level for legal certainty for libraries in the digital environment, discussions are taking place at WIPO where IFLA proposes a draft Treaty for libraries.
Both EBLIDA and IFLA are dealing with the challenges of access to e-content, eBooks and legal questions related to the digital environment for libraries. These issues are interconnected. Vincent Bonnet will discuss this multi faceted problem, inspiring his audience in this 15 to 20 minute session to engage in active participation. The session will be moderated by Aldo Pirola.

Actions in Europe (sold out)

Speaker: Luca Bergamo

Secretary General of Culture Action Europe

Moderator: Hella Klauser, EBLIDA EGCIS

Summary: Luca Bergamo will elaborate on the European Agenda with a special focus on Creative Europe (the new programme for Culture 2014-2020), how to benefit from this programme and how to act in concrete terms.
Luca will also show the role of Culture Action Europe on a political level and the importance of federating associations, libraries, people over projects in order to gain visibility from the European Institutions.
His 15 to 20 minute speech will inspire the audience to engage in an active session moderated by Hella Klauser

Local is critical (sold out)

Speaker: Nathalie Vallet

Prof. University of Antwerpen, Belgium

Moderator: Jan Braeckman, NAPLE forum

Summary: Nathalie Vallet will report on the results of a research project realised in 5 Flemish and 4 Dutch public libraries. The collected data reveals the existence of one generic strategic role and three more specific strategic roles (i.e. urban landmark, area-oriented herald and/or target group patron). Each strategic profile has specific implications for choices made concerning content- and process-related policy issues within the public libraries. The presentation identifies, depicts and illustrates the nature of these policy issues and as such alternative partnerships.
Her speech will inspire the audience to engage in an active session moderated by Jan Braeckman (NAPLE) with the idea to apply Nathalie Vallet’s findings to e-services in public libraries.
