Webinar recording: Librarians are essential- Advocating for a seat at the table

16 September, 2019

Dear all,

The IFLA Evidence for Global and Disaster Health Special Interest Group's third webinar focused on ways in which librarians can advocate themselves by initiating and developing relationships with relevant local, state, and federal officials and agencies, as well as with emergency responders. Siobhan Champ-Blackwell drew on resources available through the U.S. National Library of Medicine, and Dr Lenny Rhine presented on his experience with the Research4Life Advocacy Toolkit and associated marketing resources.

The webinar recording and supplementary material are available here https://www.ifla.org/publications/node/92423?og=25692

With best wishes,


Dr Caroline De Brún, DipLIS
