The President’s Editorial


Jukka Relander
EBLIDA President

Dear EBLIDA members, dear colleagues,

Eblida is an organisation with a strong sense of direction. The task is clear: we are lobbing for libraries, and for the basic rights of the European citizens to ensure access both to information and to our cultural heritage in the digital era.
 
To meet our task, we must work for sufficient resources. We need to cut the outflow of members, seek new funding and engage with new allies. We will manage.

The ongoing legislation process on copyright will be a central field of activity in the near future. However, as highlighted at the Riga conference, there are other areas of interest, too.
 
An increasing number of people in different European countries are lacking basic literacy skills to participate in the information society. Libraries provide the only existing European-wide network at hand that can improve both the literacy and digital skills of tens of millions of people. We have a mission in here.
 
A striking new idea at the conference, at least for me, was our mutual interests, along with the publishers, in the taxation of  e-Books. A  well known fact is that the e-Book is classified as a service, not as a piece of work, and consequently, it has remarkably higher value-added tax than its printed counterpart. While conducting the sometimes heated discussions regarding  e-Books in libraries, we should ally with the publishers to lobby for the lowering of the VAT on the eBook. This will be a positive challenge.
 
Copyright issues are on the agenda of the ongoing Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations. We should follow these with the utmost care, and lobby wherever and whenever we can.
 
I wish to express my gratitude to the outgoing president Klaus-Peter Böttger and the members of the Executive Committee (EC). Eblida is on a good track. After the first meeting of our new EC, I also wish to share my optimism about the near future. The organisation is in the hands of motivated and enthusiastic people.
 
Let us step on the gas.

Jukka Relander
EBLIDA President

News round‐up

Meetings with Members of the European Parliament (MEP)

During week 16, the EBLIDA Director had meetings with several members of the European Parliament.
 
The key point was to discuss the current review of the INFOSOC Directive and give an opportunity to MEPs to hear the voice of libraries in this passionate debate.

During these meetings, the EBLIDA Director caught the attention of the MEPs with seven (7) recommendations within the scope of a Library-Friendly European Copyright Reform, as well, he presented an information paper entitled Intellectual Property, Copyright and Libraries in the Digital Age.
 
This presentation was also an opportunity to provide a detailed explanation on  how libraries are working, what obstacles they are facing and how they could help to deliver the European Agenda.
 



CULT Committee Failed to Issue an Opinion on the Draft Report on the INFOSOC Directive
 


Brussels, Thursday 16 April, 2015. European Parliament, 9 am.
 
The Jozsef Antall Room is packed with MEPs, Assistants, Commission staff and lobbyists. Point 4 of the agenda attracted  a lot of people to this meeting since it is one of the key issues of the copyright debate.

 A few months ago, the CULT Committee appointed MEP Isabella Adinolfi (EFDD, Italy) as rapporteur in charge of drafting CULT opinions on the implementation of the InfoSoc Directive.
Her work resulted in making 121 amendments to the initial report from Julia Reda (JURI Committee) and issuing the following draft opinion.
 
The Chair of CULT, Silvia Costa (S&D) ran through the 121 amendments asking MEPs to vote on each of these.. The process was quick (thanks to electronic counting system  for the votes) and within half an hour, the result was issued: CULT committee members haven’t agreed on the draft opinion, and therefore CULT will not issue an official opinion on the report on the implementation of the InfoSoc Directive.
 
From a librarian’s perspective, it is quite unexpected that the committee in charge of culture and education is not able to issue an opinion on copyright that is so crucial in defining the rules of access and use of information. A stronger support for a greater balance of rights, exceptions and limitations for public institutions wouldn’t have harmed the whole market and would have given a clear message to the other committees of the importance of culture and education in the building of European citizenship.
The other committees have each issued their opinions. See the opinion of IMCO (Committee on Internal Market and Consumers), the opinion of ITRE (Committee on Industry, Research and Energy) and the 1st set  and 2nd set of amendments of the opinion of JURI (Committee on Legal Affairs).



JURI Committee Vote on the Report of INFOSOC Postponed


The vote on the report of INFOSOC of the JURI committee initially planned on 7 May, 2015 has been postponed to 16 June 2015. We will keep you informed of further developments.

EBLIDA signed The Hague Declaration on Knowledge Discovery in the Digital Age
 

The Hague DeclarationOn 6 May, 2015, in Brussels, the Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche (LIBER) launched The Hague Declaration on Knowledge Discovery in the Digital Age.

The Hague Declaration of which EBLIDA is one of the first signatories aims to foster agreement about how to best enable access to facts, data and ideas for knowledge discovery in the Digital Age. By removing barriers to accessing and analysing the wealth of data produced by society, we can find answers to great challenges such as climate change, depleting natural resources and globalisation.
 
The full text of the Declaration is accessible here.
Resources and additional information can be found here.

Copyright and the Digital Single Market Strategy: Why Licencing is Not Always the Solution
 

Copyright for CreativityOn 6 May, 2015 just a few hours away from the launch of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy, Copyright 4 Creativity (C4C) gathered representatives of the EU Institutions at a breakfast event in the European Parliament to explore if licencing is the miracle solution in the copyright debate, as some stakeholders claim it to be.
 
The debate hosted by Swedish S&D MEP Jytte Guteland, was co-organised by C4C with COMMUNIA, Europeana, and C4C signatories EBLIDA (European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations), IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions), Kennisland and LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries).

23rd EBLIDA Annual Council Meeting & EBLIDA-NAPLE Conference, Riga, Latvia


The Conference of EBLIDA was well-run thanks to the wonderful organisation of the National Library of Latvia and a good programme variety of   keynote speeches, round tables  and breakout sessions.
 
Uldis Zariņš Uldis Zariņš from the National Library of Latvia kindly moderated the day’s activities, inviting and introducing speakers on stage and giving necessary information to participants. He opened the day by  giving the floor to Linda Pavļuta, advisor to the Minister of Culture, speaking on behalf of Dace Melbārde, Minister of Culture of Latvia. Ms Pavļuta underlined that “Latvia counts 2000 libraries, and that each Latvian can access a library within twenty minutes.

Arvils AšeradensArvils Ašeradens, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Latvia interestingly mentioned  that libraries are “a great asset to the social and economic fabric of countries, and  we couldn’t agree more.
 

Andris Vilks
Andris Vilks
, Director, National Library of Latvia, highlighted that “the mission of libraries is to make people’s lives better by making them smarter.
 



Kristīne PabērzaKristīne Pabērza, President, Library Association of Latvia walked the audience through the EU strategy 2020 focussing on the concept of smart growth: the strengthening of knowledge and innovation as drivers of future growth. She stated that in that context “Literacy is a pre-requisite to achieving this goal. The ability to read, understand and be understood is becoming more important than ever. Libraries in Latvia and all over Europe are and will serve as the gateway to the future by providing lifelong access to resources, knowledge and tools. All to ensure that our citizens’ skills remain relevant to the current economy as it continues to evolve.
 
Jan Braeckman, Chair of NAPLEJan Braeckman, Chair of NAPLE, whet the appetite of the audience by describing the key notes and the discussions and by reversing the title Building a Europe of Readers to focus on the concept of Readers, Building and Europe from a Public Library perspective, highlighting the importance of being able to discuss library issues from a Pan-European perspective.
 
Klaus-Peter Böttger, outgoing EBLIDA PresidentKlaus-Peter Böttger, outgoing EBLIDA President, opened the first session For a Knowledge-Based Europe by reminding the audience that “literacy is a key issue at the European level and that it is not acceptable to have 1 in 5 Europeans having difficulty in reading”. To fight illiteracy, libraries cannot be seen from an economic perspective only. “Libraries in helping to build a Europe of readers are helping to achieve a knowledge- based Europe.
 
We had the chance to welcome two members of the European Parliament.

Sylvie Guillaume, Vice President of the European ParliamentSylvie Guillaume, Vice President of the European Parliament, gave an interesting video message on the always evolving role of libraries and librarians in an ever-changing environment. She smartly referred to Albert Einstein’s attributed quote drawing a link between libraries and bees in saying “if bees were to disappear from the earth, the world would only have 4 years to live”, thus implying that libraries are as vital as bees, a notion which we  fully support!
 
Inese Vaidere, Member of the European ParliamentInese Vaidere, Member of the European Parliament, gave a  short introduction in English underlining the importance for Cultural Diversity in Europe and how important it is for her to speak in her mother tongue. She then gave her talk in beautiful Latvian. We were happy to hear her saying that “libraries are key to the EU2020 strategy and they should be better supported”.
 
Sven Birkerts
Sven Birkerts, t
he first keynote speaker, highlighted that “libraries are about reading, about preserving content, processing information” and that a “new set of rules apply”.



Divina Frau-MeigsDivina Frau-Meigs concluded the keynote speeches with a presentation focusing on four main points:
1. young people, libraries and trans-literacies, 2. public policies, 3. modes of governance for libraries and 4. the meaning of libraries’ public service mandate, including the rights to  access, create and distribute cultural content.
 
She concluded her speech with the role of library associations that should fight for access and equity (e.g. need for an  internationally binding instrument on copyright limitations surrounding licensing of online content), fight for e-inclusion and fight for global information commons.
 
To better maintain their public service mandates, “libraries should move towards digital humanities and new public services online, new literacies and reorganisation of knowledge around information”.
She concluded by saying that “the pre-digital library form can “deliver” if it moves with the digital uses of young people”.
 
Session 1 continued with a forty minute panel session moderated by Kate Russel from the BBC.
A lot of issues were addressed during the panel debate that you can see here.
 
Attendants broke into two workshops:
 
Workshop 1.Building Literacy Advocacy: the role of libraries and library associations, organised by EBLIDA, Library Association of Latvia, ELINET – with the participation of keynote speaker Prof. Divina Frau-Meigs.
 
The aim of the workshop was to generate ideas regarding literacy advocacy at three levels: local, national and European.
Participants dealt with the question of literacy, libraries, the role of national library associations, European policies and politics, including EBLIDA’s position paper entitled Libraries and Literacy, and the Elinet Project.
 
Those issues were identified through six key words: partnerships, skills, source and resources for professionals, visibility, impact, use of IT, and inclusion (social and e-inclusion).
 
Workshop  2. Skilled by My Library: Connecting Policy and Practice in the EU, was organised by NAPLE and the Reading and Writing Foundation – with the participation of Ms. Gina Ebner, Secretary General, European Association for the Education of Adults.
 
The workshop focussed on adult education and the way to raise awareness of policy makers on the part libraries can play in the learning process and the actions to be undertaken to connect library associations and the European Commission’s coordinators on Adult Education.
 
The day’s concluding session was entitled  What’s Next.

Kate Russell, BBCKate Russel (replacing Ryan Heath who was unable to attend) did a wonderful job wrapping up the day.
 
She summarised the keynotes and panel discussions, and thanked the delegates for their participation and the hosts, the Latvian Presidency and the Library of Latvia for the enlightening day.
As an author, she insisted that “it is really important for me that my  work is available to all. Writers don’t work to become wealthy. We write because it’s a passion”. She supported the importance of EBLIDA’s work in “promoting and defending the interests of libraries, archivists and the information community at large in the digital age” as well as the Right to E-Read Campaign.
 
Kate  also insisted on the fact that “The old fashioned view of a librarian needs to be wiped out. They are becoming custodians of context in an ever-increasing forest of information, both in the form of atoms and bits. Librarians need to become our guides across multiple platforms, disciplines and trans-literacies. They need to be given enough training and support to be able to keep up with technological change […]”. She also highlighted the need to engage with youth, especially through digital means,  with  ebooks for instance.
 
She concluding her talk by inviting delegates to work on  “how to make a visit to the library a journey into the future? ”.
 
Immediately after this conclusion, and before session was turned over to  Jukka Relander, the new elected President, the National Library of Latvia showed a video on reading promotion for children and parents in Latvia. The event brings together each year 17000 people to the Annual Grand Jury. This  very successful event originated from the Netherlands and was smartly imported and adapted to the country.
 
Jukka RelanderJukka Relander, the last speaker of the day and incoming EBLIDA President, closed the meetings  by expressing  his will to begin his Presidency in a listening mode so as to collect and gather all the important ideas and information from the librarian community to help drafting EBLIDA’s future direction.
Meanwhile, he highlighted that the key issues remaining at the core of EBLIDA are: Literacy, e-books and copyright.
 
He thanked the  assembly and invited attendants to join together  for the group picture
