The IFLA Section Education and Training (SET) has organized a Post-Conference Satellite on 29-30 July at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2022 in Dublin, Ireland. The satellite is hosted by University College Dublin (UCD).

SET addresses the knowledge and skills Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals require to take on leadership roles and to become advocates and change-makers who enrich the lives of the diverse communities they serve.

The Post-Conference Satellite aims to provide an overview of conceptual foundations of community-centered LIS education, reflecting IFLA  Global Vision and a paradigm shift to proactive libraries transforming communities. This in-person Satellite will provide the opportunity to explore contemporary educational programs and projects and to discuss future developments of curricula suitable for the community-centered libraries that are aimed at social inclusion, digital equity, and lifelong learning.
