IFLA Newsletter, May 2023

The May 2023 IFLA Newsletter is out and focuses on Cultural Diversity.

There’s a clear link between the richness and variety of our cultures, and the success of our societies as a whole.

What is it that libraries can do to continue to nurture our spaces to support cultural diversity? What can we do to help remove any barriers, restrictions, and obstacles to these spaces to enable meaningful interculturalism? This newsletter highlights some recent examples!

There’s also lots of WLIC news. We’re excited to share the programme with you, so you can already take a look at what’s planned. You also have a little more time to benefit from the Early Bird rate! And if this wasn’t enough, we have insights into Dutch libraries, and reflections on how Congress attendance has impacted on an emerging leader—along with the announcement of a fresh round of grants to help emerging leaders to join us at WLIC 2023. 

Besides this, there are also updates from our professional units and regions, including new efforts to build advocacy in Africa and underline the role of libraries in promoting sustainable development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
