The Library Map of the World website is a source of country-level library statistics, information about the library environment in each country, and a unifying platform providing access to SDG stories. IFLA Library Map of the World (LMW), is an initiative to ensure the availability of data, information and stories that show the powerful contribution of libraries in supporting smarter and more inclusive societies. This is the key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  How library associations can use this material from the LMW Website for their work and how they can contribute to make their work more visible will be discussed in this online seminar, organized by IFLA Management of Library Associations Section and IFLA Headquarters.
Join Halo Locher, Chair of the Management of Library Associations Section, Kristine Paberza-Ramiresa, IFLA’s Member Engagement Officer, and Stephen Wyber, IFLA’s Policy and Advocacy Manager, as they will discuss:

The importance of being well presented on the Library Map of the World
Engagement scenarios for library associations
Processes behind keeping the LMW data up to date, preparing and curating country profiles
The 2021 priorities for SDG stories
Using the LMW content and resources in library advocacy
