"The role of IFLA in diffusing professional norms and standards"

The Standing Committee of the IFLA Library Theory and Research Section is undertaking a project aiming at eliciting the role of IFLA in promoting professional norms and standards in general and norms and standards related to information literacy in particular.

Results will be presented at an LTR session in Seoul, and for this session we would like to have national and regional reports on this topic from different parts of the world where we so far do not have partners, e.g. Latin America. Asia, East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa and Russia.

Reports can be based upon :
  • qualitative interviews undertaken according to the attached interview guide (English and French version - the interview guide is about being translated in Russian and Spanish),
  • quantitative surveys developed on the basis of the attached guide or other kinds of data deemed relevant, e.g. document analysis.

If you want to contribute to this project please express your interest as soon as possible to the project leader:
Ragnar Audunson
(Chair, Library Theory and Research Section)
E-mail: Ragnar.Audunson@jbi.hio.no

Please indicate what kind of empirical investigation you would like to undertake (qualitative interviews, survey or document analysis) before the 1st of March 2006.

We look forward to receiving your response.
