The IFLA News Media Section is pleased to announce that registrations are open for the pre-conference satellite meeting planned for 12-13 August 2015 in Pretoria.
Venue: Dinokeng Game Reserve
Theme: Newspaper e-publishing trends: the stewardship role of libraries
Both printed and online newspapers are critical sources of primary information for library users worldwide. Whether it be for historical research on the politics of the day or society as it was, or for survival information needed to make a living now. Information is a key component required for sustainable development, democratic societies and economic growth. The equitable right and freedom of access to information contained in newspapers should be guaranteed by libraries. The meeting will focus on the African context.
We look forward to seeing you there.
