Within IFLA, the Section on Management of Library Associations advocates for the interests, aspirations and concerns of the library associations that are represented among IFLA members. There is a continuum of resources available to library associations: some have paid staff and others are run by volunteers, both possessing a wide range of experience and expertise. The Section addresses the needs and promotes interests of all types and sizes of library associations and brings together staff and elected leaders and representatives of these associations to:

  • share experiences;
  • develop useful publications and to offer workshops. seminars and programmes that address their needs and interests;
  • support IFLA's Core Programmes;
