Aug. 16th: Inspiring day!!

Here you can find my interview with IFLA about Ifla advantages for librarians.

My day starts with the presentation of our cooperated paper with my dear friends mohadese dokhtesmati and maryam saberi. The article was about “The status of ministries’ website of Middle Eastern countries in achieving e-Government “. As a youngest attendee in this section, the officer, Eleanor Frierson, did a great compliment of me and I and Dr. Abazari, faculty of Azad Univ, were been couraged by the attendees suprisingly specially for her encouragement of me to do Ph.D and for her supportive behavior to attend just for my speech! They were some comments and suggestion for our next phase and hopefully the next phase can be present next year :p

The noon was followed by Elsevier demonstration and was awesome, they have new database of pictures,protocols and … It’s really intreting for me that they facutlties do care about using pictures in their course and that might be the main reason for elsevier to provide such databases.

I attend in Bill and Melinda Gates award announcement which was a totally great touchin story of an information center which dedicate their whole services to give information to EVERYBODY in their country. Gonna back with more news and pics!!

Talking with Ifla president about Iranian activities and cooperation with ifla, She believes that we should attend in our own region (asia and oceanic) better and stronger so that we may be the host of IFLA some day (not soon for sure)!! They do plannig for ifla hosting every 7 years and we have just one chance every 7 years to be selected amongst asia region.

Finally, we had a very great cultural evening..thanks IFLA billion times for creating such a moment.

P.S: it’s really interesting for me that where the 2200 attendees are!! The rooms are almost empty of participants comparing with previous ifla(s), people should be at beaches or the freezing tempreture of rooms makes everybody run away!! :)
