Note: Deadline extended to 20 November 2021

The year 2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the IFLA Library Services to Multicultural Populations Section. To mark this milestone, the upcoming November/December newsletter will celebrate 40 years of the professional unit, looking back on the section’s activities and achievements. We encourage our members, past and present, to reflect on their interactions with IFLA over the years, and the impact that IFLA has had in supporting their delivery of library services to their multicultural communities. We also invite our members to share any other recent news stories – not necessarily related to the history of the section – which may be of interest to members.

The ideal length of stories is 400-600 words with accompanying images (300dpi, JPEG format). By submitting articles and images, you understand they may be used, both internally and externally, in print and digital media formats including print publications, websites, and social media, under a CC-BY 4.0 license. You understand that images/articles on websites can be viewed throughout the world, according to the legislation in place locally.
