Meet the global network of Emerging International Voices: young digital experts at their institutions and advocates for the future of libraries.
We asked the participants of the programme how they felt about the state of digital libraries in their home countries.
They are young, they are bold and they are connected – and they are the future of our libraries. 22 emerging international voices discuss the role of digital libraries – and digital technologies in libraries – in their countries.
„Emerging international voices“ is a joint project of the Goethe-Institut and IFLA. Its long-term purpose is to establish an international network of young individuals engaged in library advocacy in their countries. The participants had been chosen by the local Goethe-Institutes in an open call process.
