IFLA is excited to announce it will hold the 87th IFLA World Library and Information Congress in person, in Dublin, Ireland 26-29 July 2022. After three years without the opportunity to meet in person, we are going once again for a physical conference. It will be an opportunity to share, learn and innovate, but also to reunite with friends and colleagues after a long break. Under the theme ‘inspire, engage, enable and connect’, the Congress will help us charge our professional batteries, and chart a path for the future of our field, together.
We are privileged to be able to do so surrounded by the literary history of Dublin, and the energy and passion of the Irish library field, in the first ever WLIC to be held in Ireland. We are grateful to the Irish National Committee for their work and support and know that they are assuring delegates of Céad Míle Fáilte – a Hundred Thousand Welcomes! In conjunction with the Irish National Committee, IFLA will be confirming activities and publishing more information as the Congress plans develop.
The Conference Programme for IFLA WLIC 2022 will be available around May 2022.
