The IFLA Government Information and Official Publications Section is pleased to invite proposals for short and sharp/precise/exciting presentations for a knowledge sharing and engaging open session in Wroclaw, 2017.
Aim and scope

Libraries collect documents of International Legal Institutions in paper and electronic format for their patrons. However, in the days of Facebook and Twitter these institutions are rethinking their ways of producing and disseminating information, including opening new channels of communication. Some institutions are using social media, others are optimizing their databases for mobile devices. How does this trend affect the traditional role of libraries as information brokers?

The aim and scope of this session is to bring together librarians and information experts from institutions such as, but not limited to, the European Court of Human Rights, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the European Union,  European Union Information Centres, and other libraries that collect information from Public International Legal Institutions, to share ideas on how libraries and information centres can best provide efficient and expert information service and intermediation.
Topics could include

    Communication and cooperation between Libraries of International Legal Institutions and depository libraries for those institutions
    Explaining the role and responsibilities of European Information Centers to the general public and/or university students
    The effect of new channels of communication, such as social media platforms, on the traditional means of disseminating information
    The future of libraries as intermediaries for disseminating legal information
    Improving communication with legal professionals, librarians and the general public through better services (for example multi-lingual websites and databases)
