This page focuses mainly on links, templates and guides for producing IFLA publications.
In general, materials produced by and for IFLA (including images) should be made available under a CC BY 4.0 licence (see IFLA's copyright policy).
Thought should be given to the layout and expression so as to make the publication more easily translatable into other languages and into versions that are more accessible for persons with print-disabilites.
Units are encouraged to think about using the Professional Reports Series to more widely disseminate examples of best practice, papers on emerging trends, and project reports.
Producing publications or translations
Please contact HQ in the first instance if you plan to develop any publication that you might wish to see developed into an IFLA policy.
IFLA advocacy materials
Please contact HQ if you plan to develop any materials that might be used for advocacy.
If you want to write or revise a Professional Report, make a proposal for an IFLA Professional Report (page gives proposal form and author notes)
IFLA Standards and guidelines
When writing or revising an IFLA standard or guideline, use the manual, proposal forms and template.
Read about making translations or reprints of IFLA materials and use the permission request webform.
Section/SIG promotional leaflets
Submit draft versions to your Division Chair and IFLA HQ for checking before printing.
Units at any time may submit an article for consideration. The Editor is interested in speaking to Units about special issues to reflect a particular theme. The Editor's contact details are listed on the Editorial Committee page.
