The Library of the Development Centre participated in the 74th World Library and Information Congress organised by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), this summer in Québec, Canada.
This year’s IFLA Congress focused on "Libraries without borders: Navigating towards global understanding" and brought together 4500 professionals, from libraries, information technology and scientific publishing firms around the world. Participants learned about the latest trends in digital library services, innovation, heritage preservation, training and continuing education.
Michèle Girard, librarian at the Development Centre, presented the new intranet library site and the Centre's most recent flagship publications. The new Library intranet site, based on a Wiki platform provides easy access and exchange of knowledge between OECD professionals and the Development Centre's library. The Wiki site, enables speedy and easy access to the library’s numerous digital resources and was rated by IFLA participants as an outstanding innovative model.
