Metropolitan Libraries Section

Division: Library Types

The Section on Metropolitan Libraries is a platform for public libraries of cities with 400,000 or more inhabitants.

The Section was formerly the International Association of Metropolitan City Libraries (INTAMEL).

The Section’s Standing Committee is the way to engage actively with the Section, make all the activities possible and share the useful information. The Committee members meet twice a year, and work together using email and platforms like Basecamp.

Nominations are now open for the term 2017-2021. Please consider nominating (if your Institution or Library Association is an IFLA member) or indicating the name of a librarian who wants to be involved (we will try to find a nominating Institution or Association). The deadline is February 8th.
