Our name says what we are. Our members are library associations and institutions from the library and information field who want to be part of, and support, an international network working for the benefit of all. They are joined by personal affiliates bringing their own contribution to IFLA’s success.

IFLA has a member base from around 150 countries in all regions, making it the most international library organisation in the world. This allows IFLA to speak to stakeholders and international bodies on behalf of libraries and librarians everywhere.

Make our voice stronger by becoming a member.
