The 10-Minute International Librarian #35: Check out the IFLA ideas store

The New Year is traditionally a time for trying new things, or taking an imaginative approach to things you have always done in a certain way.

But with the continued lockdown in many countries, it’s not always easy to come up with novel ideas.

Many of us are simply trying to keep going until we can get back to something like normal.

However, you don’t have to have all the ideas yourself!

There are great sources of ideas that others have tried and tested, that could give you inspiration for changing what you do, or the way you do it.

So for our 35th 10-Minute International Librarian exercise, check out the IFLA Ideas Store!

It contains around a thousand ideas from around the world. They concern how you work with others, use technology, promote emerging leaders, and advocate.

Some things you can do on your own, some involve working with others.

All will help you work towards realising the opportunities set out in the IFLA Global Vision.

Take a look, and share your favourite idea in the comments box below!

Good luck!


This idea relates to the IFLA Strategy! Key Initiative 2.1: Shape public opinion and debate around open access and library values, including intellectual freedom and human rights.

You can view all of our ideas using the #10MinuteInternationalLibrarian tag on this blog, and of course on IFLA’s Ideas Store! Do also share your ideas in the comments box.
