NAPLE Assembly and e-Book Working Group Meeting 2014

Last May 13, 11th NAPLE Assembly was held. The day before, the NAPLE E-Book Working Group had a meeting where the e-book policies in European libraries were studied.

In the NAPLE E-Book Working Group meeting, some of the countries participating presented updates of their countries’ projects, Dan Mount (from Civic Agenda) introduced a research on e-book solutions for public libraries (a proposal from The Netherlands and Flanders towards the NAPLE E-book Working Group) and Marko Hercog, from Slovenia, proposed the creation of the re-BOOK platform, aiming to connect European library e-book lending projects.

 At the NAPLE Assembly and among other things, we held a fruitful discussion (conducted by Annette Kelly) on the strategic issues in public library policies throughout Europe. Maarten Vandekerckhove, coordinator of the Library Figures Collection Working Group presented the pilot project for the gathering of library statistics through an online survey on Google Drive and Ilona Kish, from the Reading and Writing Foundation, gave a presentation on the work of this Foundation and explored the possibilities of a future collaboration with NAPLE.

 In the next weeks, we’ll post every presentation of both meetings. You can find the Agendas for the two days, along with the Minutes from the NAPLE Assembly and all the presentations for both sessions in the NAPLE web, in the “Meetings” tab: http://naple.mcu.es/meetings/list
