description

Over the past seven years, with support from a grant from the Gates Foundation and USAID, Moldova has revitalized its entire public library network, from investments in technology, training, data analysis and promotion to a new library law that incorporates all of the key elements of the modern vision of public libraries. In this interactive session, Moldova’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Research will offer an encapsulation of that effort and what it means for Moldova’s overall development. Other key Moldovan library leaders and international experts and supporters will also lead a panel discussion of some of the most important aspects of library redevelopment--from infrastructure and professional development using emerging trends in non-formal education, to community-based advocacy and legal frameworks--facing communities and countries around the world.

Inga Lunden, Swedish Library Expert

Evan Tracz, Director of Novateca – The Global Libraries Program of Moldova, IREX
