Division IV Call for Proposals

Theme: “Getting Engaged with Library Associations – Benefits, Issues, Factors”

The IFLA Division IV – Support of the Profession – is hosting a series of webinars for LIS students. These webinars aim to create a place for students to share their projects, research, and ideas about different topics related to libraries. Each month – April through June 2021 – will address a different theme and a new call for proposals will be issued for that month. All webinars are held online and are open to everyone (no registration fees).

The project supports IFLA’s strategic directions: to inspire, engage, enable, and connect.

  1. It inspires students to conduct research and consider libraries’ experience in timely and important LIS areas which are relevant to the LIS professional community. 
  2. It engages them to be members of a professional library community, introducing them to professional competencies and providing them with experiences that they can apply to future participation in IFLA activities.
  3. It enables students to implement research or projects relevant in their communities and share their results with professional communities worldwide.
  4. It connects actors involved in the library field: members of the units of Division IV - Support the Profession who represent professional communities, LIS schools’ educators and students, libraries of various types; library associations at various levels, etc.

See Call for Proposals for full details.
