Division IV Call for Proposals
Theme: “Getting Engaged with Library Associations – Benefits, Issues, Factors”
The IFLA Division IV – Support of the Profession – is hosting a series of webinars for LIS students. These webinars aim to create a place for students to share their projects, research, and ideas about different topics related to libraries. Each month – April through June 2021 – will address a different theme and a new call for proposals will be issued for that month. All webinars are held online and are open to everyone (no registration fees).
The project supports IFLA’s strategic directions: to inspire, engage, enable, and connect.
- It inspires students to conduct research and consider libraries’ experience in timely and important LIS areas which are relevant to the LIS professional community.
- It engages them to be members of a professional library community, introducing them to professional competencies and providing them with experiences that they can apply to future participation in IFLA activities.
- It enables students to implement research or projects relevant in their communities and share their results with professional communities worldwide.
- It connects actors involved in the library field: members of the units of Division IV - Support the Profession who represent professional communities, LIS schools’ educators and students, libraries of various types; library associations at various levels, etc.
See Call for Proposals for full details.
