LibraryWorks is very pleased to partner with Emerald Publishing and Loida Garcia-Febo, international library consultant and past ALA president, on a free webinar: How Libraries and Librarians can meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established in 2016 by the United Nations (UN) to guide countries in their development efforts. Libraries and librarians are essential to the development of these goals as they greatly benefit the communities that they serve. This webinar will feature ways in which libraries and librarians can help their communities meet the SDGs and the role of North American libraries in supporting their communities from sustainable practices to user engagement approaches.

What you will learn:
-What are the United Nations Sustainable Goals?
-How are libraries promoting the SDGs at their institutions?
-How to integrate the SDGs into your library content
-Focusing on Gender Equity (SDG 5) and Reducing Inequalities (SDG 10)

Presenter: Loida Garcia-Febo is an international library consultant and the immediate past president of ALA.

Registration fee: None! This is a free event open to all librarians!
