Intergenerational solidarity in libraries / La solidarité intergénérationnelle dans les bibliothèques
Ed. by Stricevic, Ivanka / Ksibi, Ahmed
Series:IFLA Publications 156
Aims and Scope
Rapid and intensive changes in the information landscape cause changes in social relationships and, consequently, in relations between generations. Within their social role libraries should work actively to reduce age segregation and isolation, and build cohesive society through intergenerational services and programmes. The authors speak about the intergenerational dialogue in libraries - theories, research and practice - and about reading as a link between generations, thus offering to libraries strategies for establishing social cohesion.
