Librarians interested in world cultures, come join our first meeting, Monday 13 August 2012, Session Room 6, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
RELINDIAL (Religious Libraries in Dialogue)
The IFLA Professional Committee approved the new SIG in April 2012 as a vehicle to promote dialogue between cultures.
The proposed activities are:
– Identify religious heritage in the form of library collections available online
– List digital resources in the service of religious thoughts
– Initiate an international cooperation for sharing experiences
– Working on indexing languages for the evolution of the WEB can take into account the complexities of religious issues
– Cooperate with the IFLA Children and Young Adults Section for a shared experience that removes barriers and builds religious tolerance at an early age
Two lectures will also be offered during this First Meeting:
• IDEO serving intercultural Islam-Christian dialogue [thanks to FRBR]
Brother RENÉ-VINCENT DU GRANDLAUNAY o.p. (Dominicans Institute of Oriental Studies, Cairo, Egypt)
• GlobeTheoLib: online theological resources for education and ecumenical dialogue [a free platform]
