On 10 May in The Hague at the National Library of the Netherlands, the 24th joint conference EBLIDA-NAPLE of the European Bureau of Library Information and Documentation Association (EBLIDA) and the National Authorities of Public Library in Europe (NAPLE) took place.

Inspired by the EU-presidency themes, especially the Union’s aim to empower and protect all citizens, the programme accommodated libraries’ actual topics and concerns of opening up libraries to the outside world.

Inspiring keynote speeches and round-table preceded interactive work sessions on cutting-edge issues such as Open Access (data, government, etc.) from different perspectives, Skills and lifelong-learning (highlighting the role of libraries), Advocacy for libraries (from national to global level with a case study on eLending and among others, the question of copyright).

The work sessions were followed by a wrapping-up and new perspectives on the future.

    Work sessions:

    Venue: National Library of The Netherlands (Koninklijke Bibliotheek)

    1. Civic Participation in Libraries

    Room: Aula

    Chair: Annette Kelly (NAPLE Chair)

    Overall introduction: What do we mean by civic participation? Do we have different approaches across Europe and can we benefit from sharing our experiences to promote new strategies and best practice?

     

    Participants will work with various questions introduced by Bert Mulder, and exemplified by the local situation in Portugal, asking and responding themselves:
    When libraries play a role in and through civic participation does that change their role? When times are difficult and troubling, does the importance of a civic society change the place of libraries in society? Will they need to broaden their vision? In what way is civic participation related to ‘literacy’ and ‘access to culture’, access to science’? Do libraries need new competencies and what would these need to be?

    2. The Butterfly effect: library advocacy (from country specific to global level)

    Room: ROOM B.

    Chair: Jean-Marie Reding (EBLIDA Executive Committee Member, Luxembourgish librarians’, archivists’ and documentalists’ association (ALBAD) Vice President for European affairs)

    The work session will help to get an overview of the opportunities and practices on library advocacy from national level to global level and how the Butterfly effect can be used and developed by library organiszations in their advocacy and lobbying work.

     

    Participants will exchange ideas and viewpoints from e.g. government policy, European and international policy, relationship with publishers and other stakeholders.
    It will also build on the outcomes of the Library Advocacy 4 EU event held in Brussels in February 2016.

    3. Open Access and Libraries

    Room: ROOM A.

    Chair: Astrid van Wesenbeeck (Project manager and Open Access Officer, National Library of the Netherlands)

    In this session you will learn about the current state of the open access movement, with extra attention for developments in the publishing industry, the European landscape and the output of the EU Open Science Conference 4-5 April.

    To make possibilities and opportunities for libraries more concrete, the experiences of the Access to Research project in the UK will be shared with us. This will doubtlessly give food for discussion about what different stakeholders such as libraries and publishers can do to build bridges between scientific information and the wider audience.
