2021 Working Internationally Conference​

‘Working Internationally for Libraries’ is an initiative from the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) designied to promote collaboration and partnership between public libraries in England and their international counterparts.

The 2021 Working Internationally Conference explores ways of connecting with library services from across the world to inspire and inform your library service back home. A unique programme of panel sessions, presentations, and hands-on workshops draws on speakers from a diverse range of regions – UK, Europe, Canada, Africa, and the Middle East – to share best practices, spotlight new ideas, and showcase successful examples of international working projects. 

The conference is open to all UK and international public library staff as well as all librarians interested in global matters. This is a free virtual conference with high-quality, global content that is made possible through Arts Council England’s funding for the ‘Working Internationally for Libraries’ project, and is an excellent opportunity to network with international colleagues and to take home resources and ideas for bidding for international project funds and disseminating global knowledge

IFLA President-elect Barbara Lison will speak on the topic of ‘IFLA´s vision of international working’.
