The IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) is the most international professional and trade event for the library and information services sector.

It brings high-level speakers, experts in every aspect of the profession, and library and information workers from around the world together to help set the international agenda and explore issues and developments of interest to the global library field.

The Congress is also a time to celebrate our advocacy successes, learn lessons from each other, and collectively strengthen our voice.

Delegates from every country, from libraries and aligned sectors, and from student to director level are encouraged to attend. No other conference offers the same feast of librarianship and opportunities for delegates to network, discuss and learn from each other on such an international scale.

Whether it is through physical participation, at conferences held in locations and regions across the globe, or through increasingly strong virtual elements IFLA continues to explore options and develop experiences that bring the library world together.
