National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas): Libraries and Innovations are in All Development Sectors
Salemba, Jakarta - Director of Higher Education, Science and Technology, and Culture of Bappenas, Hadiat, said that the goal of development is welfare. Welfare can be seen when the nation is able to create high quality and mastering technology human resources. So that, upon entering the golden age in 2045 Indonesia could become one of the countries with high incomes and a barometer of the world economy. And the library as a source of knowledge can enter into any sector.
"Libraries and innovations must exist in all development sectors,” said Hadiat when he was being a guest speaker at Central Work Meeting (Rakerpus) of the National Library of Indonesia 2020, on Tuesday (1/28/2020).
This is in line with the thought of the Director of the National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando that at this time library should no longer think about managing collection but also how to manage and transfer knowledge. Therefore, the National Library is ready to make changes to maximize the benefits of library in Indonesian society.
"We can no longer work dogmatically. Don't just convey the work program then done. President Jokowi wants every work program to be truly focused and felt by the public. Every rupiah that is spent must have a positive impact on public," said Syarif Bando.
The National Library Rakerpus 2020 which carries the theme "Innovation and creativity of librarians in strengthening the literacy index to realize Superior HR Towards Advanced Indonesia”, according to Prime Secretary of the National Library, Sri Sumekar, was attended by no less than 200 participants from structural and functional environment of the National Library.
