IFLA Strategic Directions and Key Initiatives


The four Strategic Directions of our Plan will be progressed through a set of Key Initiatives and Activities.

The Key Initiatives and their Activities will be driven by IFLA’s Governing Board through advisory and steering groups comprised of representatives within our membership, professional units, policy and programme advisory bodies, regional offices and language centres, Leaders Associates, and partners, working closely with expert IFLA staff. 

Our staff and the professional units will also be involved in projects that support the Key Initiatives.

IFLA's Strategic Directions for 2016 - 2021 are:

  1. Libraries in Society
  2. Information and Knowledge
  3. Cultural Heritage
  4. Capacity Building
