Goodbye #ALAAC15 - Closing General Session

It has been a great experience at #ALAAC15 and I hope to participate again some time in the future.

Now we will experience the spectacular closing session - and then we will hop on a plane and return to Copenhagen for 24 hours and digest all the impressions.

The Closing General Session is a not-to-miss event, where current ALA President Courtney L. Young will pass the gavel to the 2015-2016 ALA President Sari Feldman and introduce the new Division Presidents. 

Robbie Robertson
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson and Caldecott Honor-winner (No, David!) David Shannon will talk about their new book, Hiawatha and the Peacemaker. Written in a lyrical voice and paired with arresting oil paintings, the book is bound to both fascinate and educate your young students and patrons about Native American history.
Robertson was the lead guitarist and primary songwriter of the legendary musical group The Band. Born of Mohawk and Cayuga descent, he learned the story of Hiawatha and his spiritual guide, the Peacemaker, as part of the Iroquois oral tradition. Hiawatha was a strong and articulate Mohawk chosen to translate the Peacemaker’s message of unity for the five warring Iroquois David Shannonnations during the 14th century. This message not only united the tribes but also forever changed how the Iroquois governed themselves—a blueprint for democracy that would later inspire the authors of the U.S. Constitution. Shannon is the internationally-acclaimed illustrator of numerous bestselling books for children, and his illustrations have appeared in a wide variety of publications including The New York Times, Time, and Rolling Stone.

International Librarians Reception #ALAAC15 - opportunity to network

Steen B Andersen, Denmark, Katherina Lee,
 Singapore and I at the reception
There are people from more than 80 countries at the ALA Annual Conferenc. The last event for all of us are the International Librarians Reception.

From Denmark we were four participants in the reception, and we experienced a festive evening with 581 others from around the world.

It is also the only event I have experienced at this great American Conference, which has been served alcoholic beverages. Here was beyond great cuisine also both the opportunity to get beer and wine. It's probably because there attending a many Europeans at the reception, and we have a tradition of serving alcohol to larger gatherings at conferences, or maybe it's just a prejudice.

I don't think it only was the alkohol who created the good atmosphere, but all the open and happy participants who have experienced four inspiring days. Cozy, it was

This reception offers a unique opportunity to network with hundreds of information professionals from around the world. Join us for a mixing of culture and ideas, regional cuisine, hors d’oeuvres and open bar!

Library as Center for Innovation and Secure In A Post-Snowden World #ALAAC15

If I had all the time in the world I would be in several places at the same time. And I probability would have a thicker red line in my personal program for ALA. But I is based on how libraries can use technology to benefit citizens.
If I had a time turner like Hermione, I could be in more than one place at a time at ALA Annual.<br />
Getting expert advice on the exhibit hall floor: has great ideas; candy; great jokes; tech guru; a cool new tool.<br />
Witnessing history at the awards celebrations: your favorite authors & illustrators; next up, an inspiring and tear-jerking speech; hooray.<br />
Hearing all sorts of talks given by rock stars: Edwidge Danticat, Nick Offerman, Gloria Steinem.<br />
Attending tons of mind-blowing programs: an incredible idea exchange is occurring! Gamification, diversity, programming, outreach, privacy, cataloging, advocacy.<br />
Instead, I’ll just have to register and make my choices when I get there. See you in June in San Francisco!<br />
Lisa Nowlain.

I will when the conference is over write a comprehensive article on I found the thin red line in my program.

I'll try to get around;

Public Library as Center for Innovation

In an age of information abundance, libraries can re-define themselves as anything from community living room to hands on lab to business center, and everything in between. Why not a Center for Innovation? Library users need spaces that support learning in digital literacy, visual literacy, cultural literacy, and spark innovation on every level. Hear from library designers and library leaders as they discuss innovative programs being tested and the buildings and spaces that support them.
Speaker: Peter Bolek
Speaker: Traci Lesneski
Speaker: Trent Miller

If we make it, will they come? Could introducing creative spaces add value to your community?

Libraries have always provided knowledge to their patrons and many now offer Arduino, laser cutters & ShopBots, to engage curious minds and incubate local innovation. Where did funding come from? Did the space provide value? Pilot or Sustainable? Confirmed panelists include Library and independent Hacker/Maker space founders and directors to discuss the methodology of creation, their different funding structures, and share examples of how they provide value to their community through the services they provide.
Speaker: Tod Colegrove, Head of DeLaMare Science and Engineering Library, University of Nevada, Reno

Real World Prototyping: Designing Technology Spaces through Experimentation

This panel of academic and public librarians from across North America will share experience with live prototypes to test and refine the design of experimental visualization labs, media production rooms, and Makerspaces. Prototyping and iterative design are concepts common to developers, but can be equally valuable to test novel technologies and services. The focus will be on lessons learned from successes and failures.

Digital Privacy and Security: Keeping You And Your Library Safe and Secure In A Post-Snowden World

Join Blake Carver from LYRASIS and Alison Macrina from the Library Freedom Project to learn strategies for security from digital surveillance. We'll teach tools that keep data safe inside the library and out -- securing your network, website, and PCs, and tools you can teach to patrons in computer classes. We’ll tackle security myths, passwords, tracking, malware, and more, covering a range of tools from basic to advanced, making this session ideal for any library staff.
Speaker: Alison Macrina
Speaker: Blake Carver

Don't Freak Out: Fracking the Customer Data Goldmine

Borrower privacy is a “third rail” for most librarians. Is it time for a change? Customers have come to expect highly-personalized service based on past use; they get recommendations now for everything from shoes to music. Is it time for libraries to leverage their “big data” to provide personalized service? How can we do this without compromising our principles? In this panel discussion, we will recap privacy concerns; outline opportunities for customizing service; and share concrete examples from libraries that have repurposed borrower data to provide value-added services.
Moderator: Stephanie Chase, Director, Hillsboro (Ore.) Public Library
Speaker: Brian Auger, County Library Administrator, Somerset County (N.J.) Library System

Speaker: Toby Greenwalt, Director of Digital Strategy and Technology Integration, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

Top Technology Trends

This program features our ongoing roundtable discussion about trends and advances in library technology by a panel of LITA technology experts. The panelists will describe changes and advances in technology that they see having an impact on the library world, and suggest what libraries might do to take advantage of these trends. More information on Top Tech Trends: http://ala.org/lita/ttt

And thank God the library is about much more than technology, it is about the people ......so I will end my participation in the conference with

They’re Our Customers, Too: Engaging the Homeless at Your Library

One size does not fit all and many urban public libraries across the country are learning how best to serve their whole community, including community members who are homeless. Dallas Public Library, Salt Lake City Public Library and Denver Public Library will share their unique approaches to serving the homeless, including their struggles and their successes as it relates to library staff, the housed community, the homeless community, and community partners.

Højesteret tillader homo-ægteskaber over hele USA #ALAAC15

Det som fylder absolut mest i den amerikanske offentlighed i disse dage er at højesteret i går tillod homo-ægteskaber over hele USA.

Det sætter naturligt nok også sit præg på en konference som den vi deltager i, specielt i en så liberal organisation som ALA og netop i en by som San Fransisco, der har et meget stort gay community.

Formanden for Danmarks Biblioteksforening og jeg er også blevet påvirket af stemningen, så vi har også besluttet at skilte med vores solidaritet.

Iøvrigt er det også blevet en stor kommerciel begivenhed. Her er 845 firmaer der udstiller og pludselig er der regnbuer i mange af deres logoer.

Men ikke kun på vores konference udvises solidariteten med LGBT folket også firmaer som Mastercard og udskiftet deres logo. Mon det kun er solidaritet eller kommunikation med et købedygtigt publikum? 

Nevermind, lad os glæde os over dommen og flette fingre i solidaritet

The Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Difference #ALAAC15

Open libraries - without staff ............. all the time

Do you know this when you visit the library? The experience is no longer as common in Denmark

North Beach: San Francisco Public Library yesterday at 9:55 am

When I as a Dane participant in such a big event like IFLA or the ALA Annual Meeting is one of the questions we often get; is it true that in Denmark the libraries are open without staff? 

The answer I give is; no, we do not have libraries without staff, but we have libraries that are open even when the staff is not there.

More than half of all public libraries in Denmark are now "open libraries"

In Denmark, all the libraries is free to use, In the way, that all the basis services are free of charge for the public. In Denmark almost all the Libraries are funded by tax.

The libraries are obligated to make all kinds of materials available, both physical and digital. Not just books. 
See New e-book deals between all danish publishers and the public libraries in Denmark
We have 98 municipalities and all of them are obligated, by legislation, to have a library and to finance it.

Some of the municipalities have more than one library. We have approximately 450 public libraries, to a population of 5,5 mil. people.

Half of the libraries are closed in the last ten years, but the development has hopefully stopped now.
It seems that development lead to fewer and fewer libraries, but bigger and better libraries, I hope

Open LibraryWhat is a "open Library"
We have 98 main-libraries and 350 smaller Libraries, some of them we call “open Libraries” it is term for a concept that allows users to access the library space in principle 24/7 and serve them- selves with loans and return materials. And use the computers, read or maybe even set up a meeting or an event, if the space allows it. In the first instance the term ‘open library’ was chosen as the concept was implemented in libraries that had typically been branches with short – and often inconvenient – opening hours. And ‘open library’ is also a term preferable to ‘self service library’, as this concept requires another kind of professional support enabling the users to complete the necessary transactions themselves and to find their way in the library.

Since 2004 when the first open library was created, this concept has spread to 280 libraries in Denmark and more are planned and the first main-libraries in bigger cities is now also "Open Libraries"

The reasons for this fast spread of a new concept are several. First and foremost the concept is simple. All Danes have a medical card with a magnetic stripe and a bar code, and along with a pin code obtained at the library this card gives you access to the library. In the library there is a video camera, and during some of the opening hours there may be staff, but the principle is self-service at the automated loan and return desk. And in by far the most of the many opening hours, there is no staff at all.

Medical card with a magnetic stripe and a bar code

For example my local library (Vigerslev in Copenhagen) had before an opening hours from 10 am till 5 pm, now with "open library" concept is now open from 8 am to 10 pm. But there is only personnel between 10 am till 5 pm.

A typical model is that opening hours are from morning to late evening every day. And due to the log-in procedure there are valid user statistics. Users come and go all through the long opening hours. Forget about branches open a few hours at midday.

For many years Danish libraries have worked with self-service in loan and return transactions, which means that a majority of users are familiar with selfservice procedures, which by the way are extremely simple.

The open library concept demonstrates that it is possible to create institutions that are under the protection of the public and are designed to meet citizens’ needs in a flexible way. It is likewise obvious that there is a potential for further development of the concept.

Exploring Cultural Intelligence CQ #ALAAC15 and The Green Bicycle

In the US starts work day often much earlier than in Europe. For example, it is not unusual to conferences such as ALA Annual Conference starts at 7.30 in the morning. However, I am a little surprised that the program this Saturday starts at 6:30 - And as I am from Europe, I hope it's ok, I meet at 8am - It's saturday for christ's sake

You've heard of IQ and EQ, but what about CQ?

 This morning I start out with CQ. It´s a topic I know nothing about, but it seems really interesting and I will certainly examine more about CQ as a concept and the research on the topic.
See artikels about Cultural Intelligence

In the program they describes it as:

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) refers to our ability to function effectively across national, ethnic, and even organizational cultural boundaries. Cultural Intelligence involves four interdependent capabilities: Knowledge, Motivation, Interpretation, and Behavior.

Improving our CQ makes us better communicators and more gracious actors in our increasingly diverse world. Through this highly interactive conversation, sample what CQ has to offer and learn tools you can apply immediately as you cross cultural boundaries

Speaker: Marla Ehlers, Assistant Director, Grand Rapids Public Library

My second experience Today is only because I love the movie The Green Bicycle

Al Mansour
Haifaa al-Mansour and the green bicycle
It´s the Award-winning Saudi Arabian film director and screenwriter Haifaa al-Mansour being interviewed by Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” and Dave Eggers for McSweeney’s journal “Wholphin.” Winner of an EDA Female Focus Award, al-Mansour’s first feature-length film “Wadjda” also won the Best International Feature Audience Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival, among other awards, and is the first feature-length movie filmed entirely in Saudi Arabia, the first feature filmed by a female Saudi Arabian director, and the first Saudi Arabian film submitted for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.

The film is the basis of al-Mansour’s middle-grade (and debut) novel The Green Bicycle, about a spunky and sly eleven-year- old living in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, who constantly pushes the boundaries of what's considered proper. The story of her attempt to get a bicycle, considered improper for girls to ride, unfolds against the shifting social attitudes of the Middle East, and explores gender roles, conformity, and the importance of family with warmth, spirit, and humor.

The daughter of a poet, al-Mansour studied comparative literature in Cairo and later attended film school in Australia. Her 2005 documentary “Women Without Shadows” speaks to the hidden lives of women in Arab States of the Persian Gulf and was shown at 17 international festivals, received the Golden Dagger for Best Documentary in the Muscat Film Festival, and got a special jury mention in the fourth Arab Film Festival in Rotterdam. Her next film, “A Storm in the Stars,” about Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and starring Elle Fanning, is set to release in 2016.

Opening General Session with Special Keynote Speaker
Roberta Kaplan opens the conference on a high note as part of the conference's Opening General Session, where the ALA President and others welcome you to ALA Annual Conference and set the stage for the coming days.

Roberta Kaplan

Roberta Kaplan
Friday, June 26

Hear how Roberta A. Kaplan—with the help of a band of supporters extended equal rights and made America a more democratic nation. Kaplan will offer insights into how the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was defeated, how laws get overturned, and how change is made legally.  
“Robbie Kaplan has been involved in some of the most important legal developments of recent years,” notesThe Financial Times  When Edie Windsor called Roberta Kaplan to take on the case that would bring down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Kaplan did not hesitate, as gay advocates and other lawyers had.  InWindsor, the nation's highest court ruled that a key provision of DOMA violated the U.S. Constitution by barring legally married same-sex couples from enjoying the wide-ranging benefits of marriage conferred under federal law.  Kaplan’s forthcoming book, “Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA” (Norton, Fall 2015), will offer a complete account of the success.
Described as a “litigation superstar,” a “powerhouse corporate litigator” and a “pressure junkie” who “thrives on looking at the big picture,” Kaplan is a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison and an adjunct professor of law at Columbia Law School, and is currently litigating the case against Mississippi’s gay marriage ban.  Selected as one of “The 100 Most Influential Lawyers,” as well as a 2013 “Litigator of the Year” by The American Lawyer, the 2013 “Lawyer of the Year” by Above The Law and the 2014 “Most Innovative Lawyer of The Year” by The Financial Times, she was ranked as number 5 in this year's "Politico 50."

Verdens mest inspirerende informations- og bibliotekskonference - ALA Annual Conference #ALAAC15

For 6 år siden deltog jeg for første gang i verdens største informations- og bibliotekskonference ALA Annual Conference i Chicargo med 20.000 deltagere . Jeg var ærlig talt rystende nervøs for jeg var nyansat i Danmarks Biblioteksforening og jeg skulle holde oplæg om Redefining the Library in Political Context ... hvor jeg skulle fortælle om hvordan vi i Danmark tænker biblioteket som et politisk projekt, der skal styrke og understøtte demokratiet via adgang til information, læring og kulturel aktivitet, også når det bliver digitalt.

Det gik nu ok, og gudskelov var den kun en promille af alle deltagerne der mødte op til netop min event, så vi fik en god debat som godt nok mest kom til at handle om Muhammed tegningerne, men det var ligesom det Danmarks var kendt for overthere .

Jeg har haft mulighed for at deltage nogle gange siden og det står for mig som noget af det mest inspirerende jeg har oplevet i min faglige verden. Også nogle af de mest bevægende øjeblikke har det beriget mig med, som da borgmesteren fra New Orleans fortalte om, at det første de begyndte at opbygge efter orkanen  Katrina, var 18 nye biblioteker og community centre som omdrejningspunkt for byens lokale videnstrategi og som lokale samlingssteder. Eller da en mand rejste sig og fortalte, at han havde i mange år havde været politibetjent i New York, men en dag havde han spurgt sig selv, hvad der var fælles for næste alle de mennesker han havde anholdt? Da svaret var, at de ikke kunne læse, havde han besluttet sit for at læse til bibliotekar. Sådan nogle oplevelser kan give kuldegysninger og dem kan man bare samle på, men ikke udpege på forhånd.

I år har jeg igen fået mulighed for at deltage sammen med formand og næstformand i Danmarks Biblioteksforening. En af de store udfordringer i så stor en konference, at få overblikket i det kæmpe udvalg af forskellige spor. I år vil jeg forsøge at følge et tema, der handler om hvordan vi udnytter teknologien til at skabe smarte løsninger for borgerne  og her specielt have fokus på, hvordan vi kan undgå en konstant overvågning af den enkelte.

Konferencen sætter præg på hele byen, og på alle de centrale
gader hænger bannere som her fra 2010
Når man oplever så inspirerende ting vil man jo gerne sprede inspirationen ud over hele verden. Så det vil jeg naturligvis også forsøge denne gang.

Når vi er kommet hjem vil jeg skrive forskellige artikler til forskellige medier, om bibliotekernes rolle  i det moderne samfund. Hvad emner bliver ved jeg ikke endnu, for der er et 200 sider program og ekstremt mange spændende spor. Undervejs vil jeg også dele oplevelserne både her på Biblioteksdebat og via min twitterprofil  eller via konferencen hastag #ALAAC15

Prøv at tjekke ind på #ALAAC15 , for her er amerikanerne milevidt foran os i forhold til at skabe en live online kommunikation, hvor man kan følge hvad der sker når 30.000 mennesker er sammen og lader sig inspirere af hinanden.

Det er en overvældende oplevelse at opleve så mange mennesker deltage i samme event,
Men man mærker det med det samme man ankommer, bare den stemning der er når så mange deltagere samles og sætter sit præg på hele byen. Den stemning har jeg tidligere beskrevet

Læs f.eks. Kommunikationsforum | Den amerikanske stemning - ALA 9 |

Konferencen logo og indgangen til den kæmpe site der har oppe at køre
Conference comics - so many choices at ALA Annual Conference

Så stor konference tiltrækker naturligt nok en del af de helt store kapaciteter indenfor tech, litteratur og kultur. Så der er masser at opleve på scenen og på den kæmpe udstilling af innovative produkter har man også svært ved at forstå dimensionerne af.

Man kan som skrevet følge det meste online og faktisk også som tegneserienyt, hvilket er en af de nye og lidt sjovere måder at formidle på - eller ny er den jo ikke, men at den er live online er nyt .

Men der er mange måde man kan følge konferencen, hvis man ikke lige er så heldig at kunne komme til San Francisco i de næste 5 dage.

Der gemmer sig også en privatmand bag redaktøren af biblioteksdebat, han deler også sine oplevelser også om forretningsrejser, hvor han f.eks. her har gjort sig nogle tankevækkende overvejelser om at det der lyder som et rigtig eksotisk arbejde med rejser ud i den store verden ikke altid
er det - se At lave gris på forretningsrejsen er mest for rigtige mænd

Nogle af de officielle online muligheder for at følge konferencen kan ses her,

Sustainable development requires free and equal access to information - post-2015 United Nations

Over the past year IFLA has been working with the international library community to develop its position and help ensure that crucial elements such as access to information are included in the UN post-2015 Development Agenda. Throughout this process, it is important that libraries are seen as being part of the conversation.

In Danish Library Association we  also has worked actively to get "access to information" with the UN post-15 goals. We have written to all the Danish UN delegates, central Danish politicians and officials.   We also have translated the Lyon Declaration to danish
Læs den på dansk, oversat for Danmarks Biblioteksforening.
Status from IFLA are that after many months of negotiations following the conclusion of the United Nations Open Working Group (OWG) report on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UN has now issued a Zero Draft which will form the basis for discussion during the UN Summit on the post2015 Development Agenda in September this year.

Access to information remains within the Zero Draft and many opportunities for public access institution arise within the Draft. IFLA has taken a critical look at the proposed text and has submitted additions we think should be added. These additions reflect the aims of the members as well as the aims of the signatories to the Lyon Declaration.

Read: IFLA's response to the Zero Draft

IFLA encourage continued once more to take action  and contact your Ministries, engage with the creation of your National Development Plans and ensure that access to information and the skills libraries provide are firmly rooted within these plans.

Dannelse og uddannelse i grænselandet til debat #FMDK

Er biblioteker et sted, hvor dannelse skabes? og for hvem?
Hvor demokratisk medborgerskab fordres?
Øger biblioteker læselysten, og motiverer de til uddannelse?
Hvis ja, har vi da råd til, de ikke er gratis?
Anke Spoorendonk er dansktalende Justits-, Kultur-, og Europaminister i Slesvig-Holsten.  
Michel Steen Hansen, direktør for Danmarks Biblioteksforening og Morten Hesseldahl, Teaterchef for det Kongelige Teater og moderator 
Nina von Lachmann Steensen

Der var nogle af spørgsmålene da Dansk Centralbibliotek for Sydslesvig havde dækket op til debat på folkemødet.

Anledningen var at den Slesvig Holstenske Justits-, Kultur-, og Europaminister  Anke Spoorendonk er ved at forberede delstatens første bibliotekslov. Ankes mærkesager er gratis tyske biblioteker, efter dansk model.

Hun lagde ud med at forsætte sine visioner og efterlyste erfaringer og goderåd fra den norslige side af grænsen, hvor vi har haft en bibliotekslov siden 1920. 

Så var der ellers lagt op til debat mellem deltagerne, hvor specielt  direktøren fra Det Kongelige Teaters Morten Hesseldahl noget smalle kultursyn kom i konflikt med mit mere folkelige kultursyn.

Det vidste vi nok godt, for vi har tidligere haft den diskussion om bibliotekerne også har en samfundsopgave at løse, ud over smal litteraturformidling. Det mener jeg, fordi det er en dennelsesinstiution og for mig hænger dannelse uløseligt sammen med demokrati, hvilket betyder man er forpligtet til at række ud og inddrage alle befolkningsgrupper med forskellige tilbud.

Se også Bibliotekerne kan løse samfundsproblemer hvor vi debatterer på Altinget og senere i TV2 news

Men se selv debatten, hvor Slesvig Holstenske Justits-, Kultur-, og Europaminister  Anke Spoorendonk lægger ud og ca. halvvejs inde udfolder Hesseldalh sin mening om dannelse og biblioteker, og til sidste giver jeg han svar på tiltale.

Deltagerne er:
Anke Spoorendonk er dansktalende Justits-, Kultur-, og Europaminister i Slesvig-Holsten.
Michel Steen Hansen, direktør for Danmarks Biblioteksforening og Morten Hesseldahl, Teaterchef for det Kongelige Teater, bidrager begge med markante meninger om emnet.
Lotte Hviid Dhyrbye fra Tænketanken Fremtidens Biblioteker sandsynliggør, hvordan biblioteker er med til at motivere til læsning og senere uddannelse, og dermed skaber årlig merværdi for samfundet.
Direktør for Dansk Skoleforening i Sydslesvig Anders Molt Ipsen deltager via Skype med betragtninger om mindretallets videreuddannelse i Danmark, og slutteligt fremlægger Maria Lindorf fra Tænketanken DEA en analyse om, hvordan udenlandske studerende i Danmark netto giver overskud. 

tirsdag den 16. juni 2015



Konferencen sætter fokus på bibliotekernes rolle for styrkelsen af fællesskab, relationer og social kapital. Bibliotekerne oplever en stigende interesse fra brugerne for at mødes i fysiske fællesskaber - og biblioteksrummet danner i højere og højere grad ramme om aktiviteter af alle slags. Hvordan kan bibliotekerne fortsat støtte den udvikling og samtidig være proaktiv i forhold til de muligheder for fællesskaber, som den digitale verden giver? Konferencen er også en anledning til ud fra dagens input at drøfte dine anbefalinger til en fremtidig biblioteksstrategi.

Som noget nyt kan du følge konferencen live fra kl. 10.00 ved at følge Kulturstyrelsen på Twitter (@Kulturstyrelsen). Husk at downloade app'en Periscope. Du kan også finde det via hashtagget #ksbib15
Det er Kulturstyrelsen der under den fælles overskrift ’Folkebibliotekerne i den digitale verden’ holder tre heldagskonferencer om fremtidens strategiske pejlemærker for folkebiblioteker. Konferencernes formål er, at igangsætte en debat- og udviklingsproces for fremtidens folkebiblioteker, hvor styrelsen sammen med bibliotekssektoren drøfter relevante temaer. Konferencens målgruppe er bibliotekschefer, biblioteksaktører og udviklingsfolk i bibliotekssektoren.

Jeg fik lov at være moderator på den første konference om Bibliotekernes rolle i den digitale verden’: Her blev de digitale trends rammesat og der blev set nærmere på bibliotekernes rolle i relation til digital adfærd og digital velfærd, du kan se programmet for den konferende her (pdf) og alle oplæg fra Bibliotekerne i den digitale verden her. Det synes jeg var en udbytterig dag, og jeg er spændt på hvordan vi får opsamlet alle intput og samlet i et strategisk oplæg. Men jeg er sikker på vi i Danmarks Biblioteksforening vil være en konstruktiv samarbejdspartner når det hele skal behandles politisk og føres ud i livet.

Se DB STRATEGI2020 og de
tre pejlemærker om Læring,
Digitalisering og Rummet
Hele Kulturstyrelsen og Kulturministeriet ligger nemlig i skøn forlængelse af vores arbejde mede Strategi2020, som sætter pejlemærker og indsatsområder op for os og alle vore medlemskommuner, og det er jo trods alt ude i den enkelte kommune man former sit lokale bibliotek og møder sine borgere.

Folkemøde 1:1 – verdens mindst folkemøde #FMDK

Politisk debat kan være andet end to kamphaner der er castet til at skabe konflikt, med en moderator der sætter konflikten i fokus. Det kan også være en demokratisk samtale mellem to, der ønsker at opnå et fælles resultat. Den side af demokratiet prøver vi at vise og fremme.

I en tid, hvor folkemødet står for skud for vokseværk, manglende folkelighed  og utryghed åbnes dørene nu til verdens mindste folkemøde, sådan skriver Tænketanken Fremtidens Biblioteker.

Fredag d.12. Juni omdannes et knapt 2 m2 tomandstelt til et levende rum for dialog hvor alt ‐ ifølge bagmændene Banko ‐ er muligt. Alt kan ske, og alt skal ske. Succeskriteriet i sig selv er, at det sker, og at dialogen finder sted.

Med projektet "Folkemøde 1:1” inviterer Bibliotekernes telt og kunstnerduoen Banko alle til at
komme helt tæt på den demokratiske dialog. I et tomandstelt afholdes verdens mindste folkemøde,
hvor én borger og én beslutningstager af gangen mødes under 4 øjne. Indtil videre har bl.a.
