ALADIN – 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 96 documentation centres in 49 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.
