The ALADIN network has launched a new initiative, the ALADIN Online Alert, designed to share, on a bi-monthly basis, new online and full-text information and documents in the areas of adult learning, adult literacy, lifelong learning and technical and vocational education and training (TVET). ALADIN, the Adult Learning Documentation and Information Network, was established to support networking and information-sharing between libraries and information services in the areas of adult learning and literacy. Today it comprises 96 documentation centres in 47 countries in all regions of the world. These range from large university libraries and research units to small NGO resource centres and online collections.
The new ALADIN Online Alert was developed by ALADIN members Centre de documentation sur l'éducation des adultes et la condition féminine (CDÉACF) and the Library of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL), based on the good example of the Online Alert of ALADIN member UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE). Other ALADIN members have already agreed to regularly contribute to this new information service, helping to ensure the broadest possible balance of region and content.
