For our next newsletter, the IFLA Library Services to Multicultural Populations Section invites the library community to contribute articles highlighting the challenges and responsive actions libraries take to provide multicultural library services in the current local and global environment.


Sample topics may include but are not limited to:

  • censorship
  • cross-cultural (intercultural) cooperation
  • resilience in hard times
  • value of library spaces 

We welcome and encourage contributions in languages spoken or read by volunteers in our section (currently English, French, Swedish, Persian, Spanish, and Arabic). If your contribution is not in English, we request you provide a summary (no more than 100 words) in English or that you contact our newsletter editor directly for help with translation. We cannot guarantee the ability to publish articles in languages other than English since we are relying on volunteers.    

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 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 worldwide, according to local legislation. By submitting articles and images, you also confirm you have secured permission to use any photos or other third-party content you may have included in your work.

Please send your submissions to our newsletter editor [email: [email protected]] by Friday, 2024-April-19, using the subject line “MCULTP Newsletter submission”.
