Reference and Information Services Shifting Gears

The IFLA Reference and Information Services Section is seeking proposals to present a workshop style session for our Open Session that will be held during 2018 IFLA WLIC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The theme of the Open Session is “Reference and Information Services Shifting Gears”.

Proposals should include a description of a particular service or innovation to an existing service and activities or discussion topics.
