IFLA Global Vision Workshops: Upcoming Local Events!

on August 15, 2017 - 4:37pm
*NOTE*: The workshop originally scheduled for Thursday August 24 has been postponed. We have decided to move this event to a date later in September, in an effort to make it more accessible to a larger number of people. Check back soon for a finalized date!

Join us in Winnipeg to be part of the IFLA Global Vision discussion. During the meeting, we will be discussing a vision for libraries and the challenges and opportunities that libraries face now and that they will be facing in the future. Our meeting will be highly interactive and we will provide participants the opportunity to voice their opinions and contribute to shaping the outcomes of the meeting. Light refreshments will be served. Additional details are forthcoming.

Location: TBA

Date: TBA, in late September

Registration: Email Kerry.Macdonald@umanitoba.ca, or let us know you're coming on the Facebook event page!

If you can't make it to the Winnipeg workshop, the Education Institute is also offering these workshops via webinar. The next workshop will be held on Monday, September 11, 2:00 – 3:15 EST (Register here)

Another date will be added if there is demand. Each session is limited to 20 registrations. Participants are encouraged to register as a site (a group of people in one room) so that you can have local discussions. We will provide an opportunity using a shared platform such as google docs to capture ideas and discussion.
