A post-Lyon eBook opportunity


It goes without saying that you must attend the Public Libraries Satellite in Birmingham before travelling to Lyon for the IFLA Congress but why not consider going to Paris for the LPD eBook Satellite when you leave Lyon?

LPD is the IFLA section for Libraries serving Persons with Print Disabilities. And this year they have organised a satellite in Paris, directly after IFLA WLIC in Lyon. There are frequent fast trains connecting Lyon with Paris Gare du Lyon. Getting there is easy.

The strong and interesting program will run from 22-23 August.
