Together We Serve Better. Libraries and Sustainable Development
An online seminar aiming to analyse experiences of how libraries from different European countries contribute significantly to sustainable development, and what activities are being proposed that advocate the inclusion of libraries and access to information as part of national and regional development plans which will help to meet the UN 2030 Agenda. For many years the Italian Cultural Institute Library has been part of EUROLIS, an association of librarians and information professionals from France, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Spain and the UK. Eurolis members work very closely together with CILIP to raise the profile of European library services in the UK and each year, among others projects, organise an annual seminar on a special topic related to the library world.
Representing our country, Dr Rossana Morriello will give the following presentation:
Italian libraries and the Sustainable Development Goals: considerations on actions and roles from the results of a national survey.
The presentation will explore the role of libraries in pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals, by analyzing the data collected from Italian libraries in order to gather information about actions, projects, partnerships and overall activities.
