IBNA- The National Library and Archives of Iran (NLAI) is scheduled to take part in the 88th International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) General Conference and Assembly, a globally recognized professional and trade federation that caters to the library and information services sector.
The event commenced on August 21 and will span five days in the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands.

A significant highlight of this annual international gathering is the convening of heads of national libraries, where discussions center around pressing challenges faced by national libraries of various countries, as well as issues related to librarianship and management experiences within the global scope of national libraries, Iran Daily reported.

During this iteration of IFLA, various specialized areas of library knowledge and library management will come under scrutiny. Matters ranging from digital libraries and library standards to information technology and environmentally conscious libraries will be deliberated upon in numerous working committees and meetings. Special attention will be given to dissecting the role of artificial intelligence in shaping management mechanisms and library services.

Under the theme “Let’s Work Together, Let’s Library,” the 88th conference aims to explore the ways in which libraries can contribute to fostering an inclusive society, one that ensures equal participation opportunities for all. Key topics of discourse encompass personal growth, the promotion of reading, language and digital skill development, open access to culture, as well as digital knowledge and innovation.
