BSLA Africa Convening in Kumasi, Ghana


11 – 14 February 2014


KNUST Library, Kumasi, Ghana

IFLA will be represented by Secretary General Jennefer Nicholson and IFLA Manager of Member Services and Development, Fiona Bradley


The Africa Library and Information Association, Ghana Library Association and KNUST will host the Africa convening from 11-14 February 2014 in Kumasi, Ghana. IFLA invites library associations in the Africa region to apply to participate in the convening. The convening follows the IFLA Africa Section standing committee’s midterm meeting.  The convening will be held in the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Library.

The convening will include workshops, practical activities and project planning. Materials will be delivered from the BSLA programme, as well as IFLA’s advocacy initiatives. The convening will be a very interactive meeting involving presentations, group work, discussions, and practical activities to take back to national associations to implement at the national or regional level. The meeting language will be English.

During the convening, associations will identify their own needs for further activities and development, identify needs in the region, and form action plans for implementation. Participants will assess their association’s and the region’s priorities and understand opportunities for follow-up activities and project funding.

See the call for participation for complete information and application to participate in the convening.
