Ensuring equal access to information on the Internet in Latin America

News!    News!

Got computer w Internet? Tune in on Thursday, October 25 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. (New York Time– EDT) to participate of a webchat hosted by the US Embassy in Mexico titled  Ensuring equal access to information on the Internet in Latin America.

Speaker?  Loida Garcia-Febo

As per my experience presenting workshops in Latin America, I believe that this topic is still very new in the region and librarians are still trying to understand its importance. Therefore, it is a good time to talk about how to provide access to Information/Internet to all. As a member of IFLA/ FAIFE, I will (of course!) include the Internet Manifesto and its Guidelines on my talk.  The audience includes colleagues from Latin America, Spain, and the USA.  

I *will* send the link for the webchat in October… it is in Spanish, but you all have time to polish your Spanish to participate!
