Introducing… the 10-Minute International Librarian

IFLA From Home: Introducing the 10-Minute International LibrarianWith a fundamental mission to serve their communities at a time of unprecedented social, technological and economic change, libraries are busy places!

Ensuring access to information and technology, providing support and skills development, managing diverse and every-growing resources, and preserving our heritage against decay and loss – there’s a lot to do.

Our mission at IFLA is to help you do this by inspiring, engaging, enabling and connecting the global library field, and so to deliver on the IFLA Strategy 2019-24.

To do this, we rely heavily on the work of our Professional Units – the biggest brains trust in the library field – a group of committed volunteers giving their time and energy for the sake of libraries globally.

But we know that it’s not always easy to set aside so much time, or to find the resources to attend WLIC every year.

Maybe you can only spare a few minutes a week, beside professional, family and other commitments.

Fortunately, there are so many other ways to engage, and to contribute to the global library field!

In our new series – the 10-Minute International Librarian – we’ll be identifying great ideas for how you can do this.

Each week, we’ll publish a new post, and explain how this relates to the IFLA Strategy.

See you next week!


As we publish more ideas, you will be able to view these using the #10MinuteInternationalLibrarian tag on this blog, and of course on IFLA’s Ideas Store! Do also share your ideas in the comments box.
