ALADIN, the Adult Learning Documentation and Information Network,


ALADIN, the Adult Learning Documentation and Information Network, has been established to support networking and capacity building between documentation centres and libraries in the area of adult learning and literacy. It emerged in 1997 from a CONFINTEA V workshop in Hamburg which focused explicitly on adult education documentation and information.

ALADIN is working towards facilitating global access to information and documentation on adult learning and serving as an information broker between researchers, practitioners and policy makers by:sharing relevant information on adult learning; correcting the uneven distribution of adult learning documentation and information resources; providing training in adult learning knowledge management.

Today it comprises of 99 documentation centres in 48 countries in all regions of the world, with some being complex university libraries and research units, some being small NGO resource centres and others being virtual collections.

Adult Learning Links.....
More than 200 annotated Adult Learning Links have been added to the ALADIN website to enable users to search for full-text materials, online journals, databases, statistics, etc. in the area of adult learning.Important specific content areas of adult learning are included with their own group, such as “literacy” or “gender”.

The project was started in November 2002. In late 2013, all information services of ALADIN members were screened and the links were updated, reorganized and many new links were added.
This selection of links is constantly updated. Thank you for contacting the ALADIN Coordinator Lisa Krolak with any additions, changes or comments that keep the Adult Learning Links as relevant and helpful as possible.....
