The ELA Young Professionals Club held its third summer camp at The Police and Border Guard College of Estonian Academy of Security Sciences at Muraste.

The library in its different forms has been experiencing changes for a very long time. The first libraries emerged as the collections of different government, economic and other important documents at the time when people felt the need to acknowledge themselves. This need has persisted, but the role of the libraries has changed a lot through time and it will certainly continue to change. A contemporary library is definitely a memory institution in a traditional sense, but it is also a learning and activity center and serves as a community and cultural center. The library can also be in a digital environment, its existence isn’t dependent on the physical space.

The goal of the last year’s ELA Young Professionals Club summer camp, “BibliCamp 3 – Library in 2035”, was to get acquainted with the vision document of Estonian libraries and to think without limits about future libraries. We wanted to create a Utopian vision about the services of the future library, the skills of a future librarian, and the physical and digital space of the library.

Services of the future library

As emerged from our discussions, the keywords of the future library are availability and convenience in a broad sense. The first thing we think about regarding the services of the library are borrowing and returning. In bigger libraries, it is common that in addition to borrowing and returning books via a librarian one can also use self-service machines. This makes the main service of the library easy and fast for the readers, while they maintain the freedom to choose. We can assume that machines are here to stay and their development will continue. This means that the library’s borrowing process will become more automated and the responsibility for properly borrowed books is greatly placed on the reader.

Keeping in mind the usability and usage purposes, we could implement special bar code scanners that the readers can carry with them and use to borrow the wanted book at a suitable time and place. Later, when the reader returns the scanner and exits the library, the system would check the borrowings. Security gates would notify of any problems.

LBB JSS 1. biedru seminārs

LBB JSS 1. biedru seminārs - fbevent4.png

Latvijas Bibliotekāru biedrības Jauno speciālistu sekcijas rīkotās konferences un pasākumi vienmēr bijuši atvērti visiem, bet šoreiz mācāmies būt nedaudz savtīgi – gaidāmais seminārs būs paredzēts tikai biedriem.

Mūsu dzīves straujajā ritmā un aizņemtībā ir grūti atrast mirkli un pievienoties biedru sapulcei, it sevišķi ņemot vērā to, ka esam 37 biedri no dažādām Latvijas malām – Preiļiem, Saldus, Ventspils, Madonas, Rīgas, Cēsīm, Valmieras un citām pilsētām. Pieņemt dažādus lemumus, plānot 4CanGurus un citas aktivitātes, atrodoties dažādās pilsētās, nav viegli un ir reizes, kad tehnoloģiju attīstības sniegtās iespējas vēlamies nolikt malā un vienkārši satikties – redzēt, dzirdēt, iepazīt viens otru. Galvenokārt šī diena paredzēta, lai mēs veidotos kā stipra un vienota komanda.

Lai tiktos un būtu vienoti, ieviesīsim jaunu tradīciju – biedru semināru. Šoreiz semināra ietvaros notiks divas lekcijas, kuras vadīs JSS aktīvs atbalstītājs Kaspars Rūklis un bijusī ilggadējā JSS biedre Viktorija Moskina. Notiks arī biedru kopsapulce un prāta vētra dažādu pasākumu plānošanai.

Šoreiz piedāvājam Igaunijas jauno speciālistu rakstu par to, kā notiek jauno speciālistu kluba izveide Igaunijā. Lietuvas jauno speciālistu rakstu varat lasīt šeit. Mūsu sadarbība izveidojusies vairāk kā gadu atpakaļ, kad aicinājām jaunos speciālistus no Lietuvas un Igaunijas uz 4CanGurus Preiļos un Latvijas bibliotekāru 11. kongresu.

The beginning

In the winter of 2013 the Estonian Librarians Associations (ELA) Special Libraries Section had their annual meeting and the discussion about ELA became very emotional, especially, when it came to young professionals and their involvement in the development of librarianship and information work. After the meeting Liina Tamm asked her friends, who worked as information specialists, how they feel about ELA. The answers were not good at all – young professionals were not motivated to participate in ELA, because they felt, that no-one listened to them and that the organization itself was ancient. Afterwards Liina presented the opinion of this little group of people to the board of ELA in spring 2013. The discussion with ELA about the future goals in terms of young professionals was very difficult, because of the different understandings about how things should work and what kind of support the novices need.

In spring 2014 Brigitta Kivisaar and Jaana Roos were professionally getting in touch with Latvian and Lithuanian young professionals, participating at an event called “4CanGurus” held in Preiļi, Latvia. Young librarians from both countries already had their own sections, during the event Latvian colleagues motivated Brigitta and Jaana to establish a section also in Estonia.

So it was only a matter of time, when those three met for cooperation. Therefore, ELA made the suggestion to create a special unit to ELA for the young professionals, so in 1th of May 2014 the ELA’s Young Professionals Club was founded.
