Evening IFLAPREatLOC Update: Wednesday

 


What an incredible, packed day of #IFLAPREatLOC activities!

IFLA DOCDEL started their day with a keynote speech from IFLA President, Donna Scheeder, and then moved on to a day of talks on such topics as strengthening resource sharing and interlibrary loan between the U.S. and Latin America.

IFLA P&C had papers in the morning, then a group photograph, and then took a bus to Fort Meade, where they toured and continued their meetings in the offsite storage facility being built to preserve and protect the Library’s holdings.

IFLA PARL‘s morning keynote speaker was journalist and author Cokie Roberts, who spoke about the value of non-biased, non-partisan information to democracy. She kicked off an fascinating and intense schedule of panels, trainings on the U.S. Congressional process, and a tour of the U.S. Capitol building.

We have heard that some people had difficulty getting into the Jefferson Building between 8-8:30 am today, though you should be able to do so as an IFLAPREatLOC delegate. We believe we have sorted things out now, but please let us know if you run into any further difficulties tomorrow morning. Thanks!
