IFLA Online Presence

Our website, formerly known as IFLANET, has rapidly become a prime source of information not only about IFLA, but also on a broad spectrum of library and information issues. With the launch of the new website in April 2009 we started an entirely new chapter of online presence.

We have switched from a static, 'flat' website to the very flexible Drupal with its modular structure. With it we can provide the IFLA groups with tools to manage their own part of the website. Also, and certainly not less importantly, we are able to expand our online presence and add services much easier than before.

Official IFLA websites

Since this main website was launched in its new form, we have created new websites and web tools next to it. New ones will be added in due course, and all will remain (also) within the IFLA internet domain.

  • archive.ifla.org
    We kept the old IFLA website, content and all, and moved it to this archive subdomain.
  • blogs.ifla.org
    Holds the official IFLA blogs. It is created with WordPress 'multi-site'. The applications homepage lists the blogs currently kept by IFLA enthusiasts.
  • extranet.ifla.org
    The Extranet provides a few IFLA groups with a secluded online area.
  • world-report.ifla.org
    This subdomain redirects to the separate domain www.ifla-world-report.org. For this World Report a
    special database-driven application was developed with a geographical interface. We plan to broaden the scope of this application and add all kinds of data that will benefit from a geographical interface.

Website Administration

All questions about and comments on the IFLA website, as well as content to be addedd and suggestions for changes, should be sent to the webmasters' mailbox: webmaster@ifla.org

Please note that we have procedures and guidelines for submitting documents and other content for the website.

Mailing Lists

Next to the website  IFLA maintains a series of mailing lists for discussions through email. IFLA groups can ask for a new list to be set up. Proposals for new mailing lists (by IFLA Web Editors only) have to meet certain standards.
