Event Date: 19 May 2016 - 20 May 2016
Skopje, North Macedonia

Over 20 public librarians will attend an EIFL workshop that aims to support countrywide advocacy for new library services and increase public access to information and communication technology (ICT) in public libraries in Macedonia.

At present, Macedonia’s 32 municipal public libraries do not have sufficient ICT to serve community needs, especially in rural areas. Discussion at the workshop will focus on how public libraries can use ICT to serve community information and ICT skills needs; creation of shared advocacy goals, and fundraising to support public access to ICT in public libraries.

The workshop is organized by the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) in collaboration with INNOVA Lib, which is an organization formed to promote innovation in public libraries in Macedonia, and the Library Association of Macedonia.
