ALA Focuses on International Relations

Loida Garcia-Febo, ALA’s new president, announced a slate of programs and tools designed to reach out to the organization’s international members. They include free webinars, opportunities for engagement with librarians from various countries, and initiatives to increase awareness of international topics impacting the library profession. Garcia-Febo will work with the ALA International Relations Advisory Committee, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), and the ALA International Relations Office.

“International members are valuable to ALA. We have a great number of international members and we want to engage them more in ALA’s programs and initiatives. We will expand ‘I am ALA’ to highlight an ALA International Member each month. My goal is to encourage and welcome International members to apply for opportunities available to their colleagues in the United States,” Garcia-Febo says.
