Giriamo un call for papers della School Libraries and Resources Centres Section per la conferenza canadese, in collaborazione con Library Services to Multicultural Populations Section.
I dettagli continuando a leggere. Scadenza 1 Febbraio 2008 In Québec, Canada, 10-14 August 2008
At the 74th World Library and Information Congress under the theme “Libraries without borders: Navigating towards global understanding”
Session Title: All aboard at the School Library: Giving children the tools they need to navigate the future!
In order to optimise global sharing and learning at the 2008 IFLA
Conference, the School Libraries and Learning Resource Centres Section
and the Library Services to Multicultural Populations Section are
planning a session where we can showcase examples of best practice in
School Libraries and in the education of School Librarians which
facilitate diversity and awareness in our multicultural communities.
Children today are witness to constant changes in their environment, but
very rarely do they have a voice in the changes that affect them.
Schools and their libraries are often at the forefront of providing
information to help them understand the world and people around them.
Despite often having limited resources making sure that school libraries
provide equal access for all our clients is an imperative.
If your school has led the way with innovative, challenging and/or
successful solutions in providing a voice for and assistance to a
diverse clientele this is your opportunity to spread best practices
across the world. Tell us about it in Quebec.
Participants are asked to present visually enticing materials to engage
IFLA delegates and show best practices. Participants’ contributions
could include demonstrations of reading activities, story telling, the
provision and use of local language materials, training techniques,
reading promotion, theatre etc. that take place as part of a school
library or school community programme in different parts of the world.
