Programme for IFLA 2016 Columbus approved
The programme as proposed by the School Libraries Section was approved by the IFLA Professional Committee.
Inclusionary practices to support school libraries"
The conference theme aligns well with the section’s new school library guidelines, which were developed to assist school library professionals and educational decision-makers in their efforts to ensure that all students and teachers have access to effective school library resources and services, delivered by qualified school library personnel.
Building on the Congress theme and Section guidelines roll-out, presentations will be considered that address the theme and examine:
- the role of the community to support school libraries and implement school library guidelines; and
- inclusionary practices in supporting school libraries and implementing the school library guidelines
