Launched this past August during IFLA WLIC 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, our first call for contributions to the Ideas Store has yielded a great and diverse set of ideas for actions that will help define the future direction of IFLA. Thus far, over 8500 ideas have been submitted from 160 countries around the world. Thank you and keep sharing your ideas!
IFLA is building a new and forward-looking strategy from the bottom up, one that will shape its key actions.
