IFLA Global Vision roadmap

IFLA is launching a series of regional workshops on 14 and 15 May 2017 at the Djeuga Palace Hotel in Yaoundé, Cameroon that are a part of a larger initiative, the IFLA Global Vision discussion, which will engage the library community in the development of a global vision for the future of libraries.

IFLA President-elect Glòria Pérez-Salmerón and Secretary General Gerald Leitner will be hosting an interactive workshop that gathers together more than 30 senior representatives from different types of libraries in Africa. They will be exploring the future of libraries and develop ways to tackle the challenges and opportunities that the library field will face. Participants will continue engagement by taking the discussion back to their own library communities.

Regional meetings will continue worldwide in the Middle East, Asia Oceania, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean.
