IFLA Newsletter, Vol. 2, No. 11

Welcome to the November edition of the IFLA Newsletter!

As we move towards the end of the year, we’ve not been slowing down at all. This edition provides just a glimpse of all the great work going on in our Federation to support the future of our field.

Our key theme this month is documentary heritage and how libraries are not only safeguarding it, but drawing on it to support development. We’re lucky to have an interview with the UNESCO lead on the topic, as well as insights from our professional units, marking the 30th anniversary of the Memory of the World Programme.

It’s also been an exciting month in our preparations for our Congress in 2023 in Rotterdam. Read IFLA President Barbara Lison’s interview with the head of Rotterdam’s Libraries, Theo Kemperman, to find out more about our host, and then read on to learn about the opportunities that are already out there.

Beyond this, we have updates on the work of our professional and regional units, stories of our work on advocacy – and in particular COP27 and our work around digital issues – a welcome to our new members, and highlights of upcoming events.

Happy reading!
