La Oficina Regional de IFLA junto a ministros y secretarios de Cultura de la región se reunieron en el Congreso de la Nación Argentina

IFLA - ოთხ, 20/11/2019 - 20:56

A fines de mayo, los ministros y secretarios de Cultura de América Latina y el Caribe se reunieron en la BCN para unificar las estrategias orientadas a implementar los diecisiete Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) y las 169 metas de la Agenda 2030, programada por Naciones Unidas.

El Foro fue organizado por la Biblioteca del Congreso, la Biblioteca Nacional Mariano Moreno y la Secretaría de Cultura de la Nación, con el apoyo de la Organización de Estados Iberoamericanos (OEI). Su apertura estuvo a cargo de la presidenta de IFLA Glòria Pérez-Salmerón, quien presentó el Informe sobre Desarrollo y Acceso a la Información 2019.

Allí, la presidenta adelantó indicadores clave sobre el desempeño de los países, explorando desde el grado de conectividad y las prácticas socioculturales habituales, hasta los marcos regulatorios vigentes.

Como resultado del encuentro los especialistas abordaron reflexiones y líneas de acción orientadas a la “buena gobernanza a nivel nacional y regional” para contribuir a una educación de calidad (ODS 4), reducir las desigualdades (ODS 10) y consolidar instituciones fuertes en un contexto de paz y justicia (ODS 16), entre otros objetivos.

Cabe destacar que este último punto busca “garantizar el acceso público a la información y proteger las libertades fundamentales, de conformidad con la legislación nacional y los acuerdos internacionales”. Así, las bibliotecas y los bibliotecarios se convierten en gestores culturales ineludibles al momento diseñar políticas globales y regionales.

Entre las principales cuestiones se debatió el cruce entre el entorno analógico y el digital, con  atención a la necesidad de adaptarse a las nuevas formas de consumo propiciadas por los libros electrónicos, archivos y documentos digitales. 

De la declaración final se destaca también el tendido de redes interdisciplinarias para la mejor toma de decisiones. Este compromiso fue entendido como un “motor de cambio” fundamental para la creación de un espacio  que promueva el libre flujo de información que invite a “la investigación, la innovación y el acceso al patrimonio cultural”. 

Al finalizar el encuentro, los ministros y secretarios firmaron de puño y letra el acuerdo de todos los Estados -miembros de las Naciones Unidas- con la Agenda 2030, sumándose a su plan de trabajo orientado a “un desarrollo más sólido, justo y sostenible para todos (...) y la necesidad de continuar e intensificar la labor sobre los 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible”, y entendiendo “el acceso a la información como un derecho humano universal”.

There are many guides, checklists and workshops that address the services and skills needed for effective data curation. However, what researchers think they need, and our assumptions about what they need in a real-world data situation can often be very different. Every institution has an infrastructure with unique challenges, and every discipline has its own…

Steps towards Stronger Libraries in the MENA Region

IFLA - ხუთ, 14/11/2019 - 14:59

With its new Strategy, IFLA not only has a new guiding star for the work of our professional units and headquarters team, but also a reference point for the field as a whole. With the workshop on strategies for stronger libraries in Alexandria, Egypt, IFLA brought new possibilities for alignment and synergies to the Middle East and North Africa region.

On 12-13 November, IFLA organised a workshop for representatives of the library field from 14 countries from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Over two days, participants learned about the IFLA Strategy and used it to start to define actions to build a strong and united global library field and so better serve their communities.

A Strategy for MENA and all Regions

IFLA’s Strategy 2019-24 is a document for the entire global library field, supporting our efforts to inspire, engage, enable and connect libraries. 

Based on the broadest and most inclusive conversation ever in our field – the IFLA Global Vision – the success of the Strategy depends on the same level of engagement and energy going forwards.

Key to this will be the actions taken at the regional and national levels by library associations, libraries and library and information workers. This is as true for the library field in the MENA region as anywhere else.

In line with the key finding of the IFLA Global Vision, we need plans that respond to regional characteristics and priorities, while focusing on the goals that unite the field globally. Through the discussions in Alexandria, IFLA made a major step from strategy to focused, effective action in MENA.

This workshop forms part of a series IFLA is organising around the world, designed to inspire, engage, enable and connect library associations and other key players, and create national strategies that make for a stronger library field.

Over the coming year, we will be engaging library associations and others in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Africa – and continuing our work with those in MENA and Latin America and the Caribbean – bringing these new possibilities to them.

A Strong Potential

The discussions in Alexandria helped highlight the impressive work already taking place in many countries in the MENA region, as well as the ambition and potential that its libraries have.

In a region with a rich cultural and scientific heritage, but which also faces major challenges, there is a real need for libraries to continue to do the best possible for their users, today and into the future.

The potential of the IFLA Strategy as a framework for defining effective actions in an aligned way became clear.  So too did the potential of tools such as the IFLA Library Map of the World to make the work of national associations and institutions more powerful.

We look forward to working further with all our participants, and the national library fields they represent. 

IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner said:

   

The need for libraries is as great, if not greater than ever. Seeing all the ideas and energy here gives me confidence that we can meet this need in the MENA region.  I’m looking forward to taking further steps forwards to define actions with our partners here, and to bringing the IFLA Strategy to all other parts of the world.
