At the Heritage Management Organization, we believe that the sum is greater than the parts. Collaboration is a basic tenet of HERITΛGE as we continuously try to weave and develop an invaluable network of partners from all over the world.
In this context, HERITΛGE supports the initiative of Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists and singed a Memorandum of Understanding to include them in our international network.
“The Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists – AGLIS has started a collaboration with the Heritage Management Organization – HERITΑGE for the support of lifelong education in the field of education and protection of Cultural Heritage. The Association seeks synergies because it believes in the synthesis of ideas, in the complementarity of forces, in the unity for supremacy. Only in this way can libraries meet today’s challenges and tomorrow’s difficulties by increasing services to their readers.”
– Dr Anthi Katsirikou, President of AGLIS
The Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists was established in 1968 and is the only recognized Panhellenic scientific association for Greek librarians. So far, the Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists has held several seminars and workshops on specialized topics and seven Panhellenic conferences. AIGLIS has also published a series of manuals and journals. At the same time, the Association is a member of international organizations (EBLIDA, IFLA) and has an advisory role in its areas of expertise. AGLIS collaborates with various institutions in Greece to promote developments in organizing and disseminating information (Ministry of Education, National Document Centre, National Book Centre of Greece, etc.).
“LIbraries are key stakeholders for the preservation and dissemination of heritage. In our efforts to build a strong coalition of like-minded institutions in heritage management capacity building, HERITΛGE has singed an MoU with the AGLI to include them in our international network. Our collaboration envisages to build capacity within the structures of AGLI, so as to be able to fulfill their mission. We are privileged to have such an important local organization in our network and look forward to their meaningful contribution to managing heritage.”
