Government Libraries as Voices for Open Government

A new IFLA World Library and Information Congress will be held in Singapore next month. We are glad to inform that we will be leading there a session focused on Open Government.

It is open to all IFLA participants who wish to discuss the theme, its set of features and how could be applied on current information procedures in the government sector and as part of citizen services.

The format will be flexible and interactive. Selected panelists will introduce topics by way of a 5-10 minute presentation. They will then chair round table sessions with participants from the audience, discussing the impact of these topics on their library services, how to effectively put the plan introduced in the presentation in place, and more. The outcome of each discussion group will be given by the original speaker or a Section member as a session wrap-up.

More details on the session’s programme are available at the official IFLA conference site.
