The 10-Minute International Librarian #4: Find Out Where IFLA Is Active

There’s so much going on in the global library field, it can be hard to work out where to start.

IFLA itself is active over so many different areas and on so many different questions. It can be easy to miss things!

It’s always a good idea to take a step back, and to think about where you might be able to identify colleagues facing similar challenges to you, or where you can ask questions.

This doesn’t need to take long either!

For our 4th 10-Minute International Librarian exercise, take a moment to find out where IFLA is active.

You can look at our Activities and Groups page to get an idea of where we have Sections or Special Interest Groups (focused on specific themes, library types, services or regions), as well as other programmes and areas of work.

Click onto the Section or Special Interest Group which is closest to your interests, and see if they have a mailing list, blog or social media. You can then follow them in order to find out more, and start to engage!

Good luck!

This idea relates to the IFLA Strategy! Strategic Direction 3, Key Initiative 2: Support virtual networking and connections
