Through the Library History SIG we share professional library knowledge and its contribution to the global voice of the library and information profession.

Globally, libraries and information services have deep roots in their societies and associations. As everything changes, there is much we can learn and we can gain inspiration from the struggles, successes, and failures of our predecessors and elders in various parts of the world.

Members of the IFLA Library History Special Interest Group have started conducting oral history interviews and are also developing a programme of research into aspects of IFLA’s history, with a view to contributing to celebration of the IFLA centenary year 2027.

This unit is sponsored by the Library Theory and Research Section.
This unit is part of the Professional Division E.
