Title: Going Global with the IFLA School Library Guidelines: Resources and Best Practices for Implementing the New Guidelines
Presenters: Gavigan, Karen, Lesley Farmer, Dianne Oberg, Barbara Schultz-Jones & Albert K. Boekhorst
Abstract: With the publication of the 2015 IFLA School Library Guidelines comes a need to help school librarians learn how to implement them in their libraries. In this workshop, conducted by the IASL/IFLA Joint Committee, participants will learn about resources to help them apply the Guidelines in their library programs. Workshop participants will:
• Become familiar with the Guidelines and share best practices for implementing them in libraries with varying types of support and funding,
• Learn about resources that support the Guidelines that they can share in their own institutions and countries,
• Collaborate with other workshop participants to develop additional resources and best practices for global dissemination. After the workshop, Joint Committee members will finalize materials based on input from the workshop participants, which will be made available for future distribution. This workshop is for IASL Conference participants who are interested in establishing and improving school libraries.
As for WS “Kamishibai,” there is no minimum number.
In case you could not register beforehand, please go directly to Kokugakuin University at 13:30.
