IFLA Guidelines for Satellite Meetings

Satellite meetings allows IFLA professional units to devote more time to a specific topic than is available during the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.
The Professional Committee now published guidelines to make sure that any agreements that IFLA enters into are formalized and will have no financial consequences for IFLA.

We are interested in discussing the guidelines with you and will bring your input to the PC.
You can find the guidelines here:

  • I have to point out my passion for your kindness giving support to folks that should have guidance on this particular field. Your personal dedication to getting the message along was particularly important and have truly enabled professionals like me to realize their pursuits. Your own important help indicates much a person like me and far more to my peers. Thank you; from everyone of us.

  • A discussion on the New Satellite has been in progress as a result of Sylvia asking the SC community what they thought about the new Guidelines. In general the response from several SC officers who have organized Satellite meetings is that they can foresee some ‘push back’ from local organizations when reqiring that they take responsibility for funding the Satellite. The good aspect of the Guideline is that IFLA will do the negotiationm with the local organization. This will be implemented in Lyon – we will monitor how successful or not this is.
