Loida, featured on item#59, library magazine from Catalunya

FullSizeRender (5)It is an honor to be included on the annual issue of item the magazine of the Colegi Oficial de Bibliotecaris-Documentalistes de Catalunya (COBDC) (Official College of Librarians and Archivists of Catalonia) which I just received in the mail. I truly enjoyed speaking to my colleagues from Catalunya. Gràcies!

I am so happy to be featured on item #59 along with IFLA President-Elect Gloria Perez-Salmeron and other wonderful colleagues. On this magazine issue, we discuss views about public policies, challenges for the future of libraries, information trends, and what would it take for librarians to be more recognized in other fields.





Library Workers Day – April 16, 2013

?????Celebrate Library Workers!  Show your appreciation and love to library workers everywhere today.  Some ideas here.

As per the National Library Workers Day website:

On January 25, 2003, a resolution was proposed:

That in order to recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of library support staff and librarians that the Tuesday of National Library Week be designated National Library Workers Day; and, that on that day, interested library workers, library groups, and libraries should advocate for better compensation for all library workers and, if the day coincides with National Pay Equity Day, these individuals, groups, and libraries should recognize both days together.
