Conclusions and New Beginnings

#lap13 has just about wound down. The first-ever delegation of librarians and archivists to Palestine has come and…well, not gone. Among the items on our agenda now are reporting back to our various communities at home, building a network founded on solidarity and skillsharing, and conducting tangible campaigns (for example, around equal rights to access of information).

This evening we held a public forum in Ramallah to present some of our findings and ideas and have a discussion with local librarians, archivists, and other interested people. Here is the handout we gave to attendees, which includes a full (unless we inadvertently missed one – there are a lot!) list of the people and organizations we visited and/or met with. Stay tuned for a full report and lots more from us.
