The IFLA Regional Office for Asia and Oceania and the National Library Board, Singapore are jointly organizing the Leaders’ Conversations series in support of the IFLA Global Vision.

The Leaders’ Conversations series is a global digital platform for library and archives leaders to share insights and developments of the field. We are back this year with the theme Visualising Our Future: Masterplans of Libraries and Archives, which is particularly poignant to the library and archives world as we face multiple challenges these two years.

Come on board this journey to imagine and shape the future for all of us!

This webinar focuses on National Libraries.
