In 2015, the EMEA Regional Council, which was hosted in Florence, invited members for the first time from across
our region to submit speaker abstracts for a member session talk of 15 minutes.
The result was hugely successful, with over 20 speakers from libraries in Europe, Middle East and Africa able to share experiences which enhanced the community's collective
knowledge and understanding. So we are repeating our call for our Meeting in Madrid on 1 and 2 March 2016.
The theme next year is 'The Selfie Generation, their digital lives, social spaces and education needs.' A description of the theme can be found
We want to hear your suggestions.
How do your libraries, archives and museums connect to young audiences?
What use are you making of social media platforms to engage with the selfie generation and beyond?
What changes are you making to accommodate the new education needs of young people?
To submit a proposal for a breakout talk, please fill in the
form. You can submit on your own or with colleagues from another institution. Forms must be submitted in English by 23 September 2015.
Talks will be reviewed after that date and we will seek to group talks from 2-3 institutions into common themes that will make for interesting and engaging member sessions at the Meeting.
More information about the Meeting will be made available on our website in September.
The Meeting attracts up to 350 delegates from libraries around the world, it's a wonderful opportunity to talk of the wonderful work you are doing in your library. We look forward to hearing from you!
