Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Centres
IFLA’s PAC Centres are not a part of IFLA’s Professional Programme. Rather, they are an important aspect of the Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Strategic Programme. They carry out independent projects that tackle regionally specific issues and build local capacity, while exchanging knowledge across their network and beyond.
