The World Bank offers a plethora of information to the public on its websites. But do you know which sites are the best for librarians and researchers? This session will highlight the “must haves” for every government librarian. You’ll learn about the World Bank’s World Development Indicators, microdata, and other useful datasets. In addition, you’ll learn which sites are the best for finding World Bank flagships and publications; project and operational documents; archival information and much more.   Presenters: Florina Pirlea is a Statistician with the Development Data Group of the World Bank. Her work focuses on the World Development Indicators database, the Atlas for Sustainable Development Goals, and various data dissemination projects. Her areas of interest include data quality and communicating with data, private sector development, the environment, and public policy. She holds an MA in International Economics from Johns Hopkins University and a BA in Economics from Bryn Mawr College.   Devika McWalters is the Marketing and Outreach Lead in the publishing program of the World Bank Group in Washington, DC.  Most of her time is spent working with libraries, academics, and government institutions to build awareness and promote usage of the World Bank’s online resources, research and publications - including the World Bank Open Knowledge Repository and World Bank eLibrary. Before joining the World Bank ten years ago, she worked at National Geographic’s School Publishing and Digital Media divisions. Devika has a BA in Communications Studies with Minors in Journalism and Marketing from the University of Iowa. RSVP link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession92
