I take the opportunity to tell you some good news. We are expecting an exciting year 2020, since the Professional Committee has just approved our proposals for IFLA WLIC 2020 in Dublin.

During the WLIC conference, we will have a joint session with the Library Buildings and Equipment Section. Furthermore, financial support to publish our current book “New Libraries in Old Buildings (also in co-operation with LBE) with free open access has been approved as part of a one-off pilot project.

ENSULIB is also going to have a satellite meeting in Cork just before the WLIC. This two-day satellite will be arranged in co-operation with Preservation and Conservation Section and University College of Cork. The Call for Papers for both will be published in January. Therefore, maybe you should spend winter holidays planning your proposals… We wish to see you in Ireland.

And do not forget IFLA Green Library Award! The deadline for proposals is 31 January 2020.

With best regards,

Petra Hauke, Convenor  

Harri Sahavirta, Secretary
