Librarians and Archivists to Palestine is underway! The first of its kind, this delegation is 16 information workers from the West who are spending time in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories to meet with archivists and librarians at a wide range of organizations and institutions. We’re discussing issues (some of which we all face, even in our different contexts), exchanging ideas, considering skillshares, and building relationships.
Want to follow LAP’s activities? There’s an email announcement list that you can join by sending a blank message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of our delegation’s regular updates during our travels will actually not be on the email list, but through three main venues:
- Twitter: You can follow us at @Librarians2Pal.
- Facebook: You can like our page where we’re posting regularly.
- Website blog: Delegates are posting blog entries throughout our time in Palestine, as well as reflections afterwards, at librarians2palestine.wordpress.com.
Once we are back, we will also send updates about possible work moving forward based on our conversations on the ground. So far, four days in, there’s a lot of food for thought.
