The Adult Learning Documentation and Information Network (ALADIN) has been established to support networking and capacity building between documentation centres in the area of adult learning. It emerged in 1997 from a CONFINTEA V workshop in Hamburg which focused explicitly on adult education documentation and information. Today it comprises of about 100 documentation centres in more than 40 countries in all regions of the world, with some being complex university libraries, some being small NGO Resource Centres and others being virtual collections. Its main communication platforms are the ALADIN website at: http://www.unesco.org/education/aladin and the ALADIN Listserv, an e-Mail connection between all ALADIN members. ALADIN works for a global learning society, where information and knowledge on adult learning is created, well documented and made accessible to all. The mission of ALADIN is networking and capacity-building of adult-learning documentation and information services for a global network of networks. It thereby facilitates informed policy-making, research and programme development by making accessible relevant documentation and continuously updated information on adult learning. To fulfill its mission, ALADIN is working towards 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, and providing training in adult-learning knowledge management. The various activities of ALADIN are co-ordinated by Lisa Krolak, the Head of Documentation at the UNESCO Institute for Education (UIE) in close co-operation with the ALADIN Task Force.
