IFLA Regroups After Cancelation of WLIC 2024

Vicki McDonald, IFLA president, issued a message to members stating, “I know that the opportunity for our Federation to come together every year is an important milestone for our members, committees, and volunteers. It enables us to share our expertise and knowledge, plan the work we will undertake together, and acknowledge our achievements. The absence of a [World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) 2024] will be felt by all.”

McDonald continues, “The IFLA Governing Board is determined to reflect and learn from the past. It is recognised that we need to do better for our Federation to truly be the global voice of libraries. To move forward, healing needs to be a priority.” In addition, “Our immediate priority is to explore options for [WLIC] 2025. As no bids were received in the open call earlier this year, we will adopt a targeted approach. Bids will be considered against a new set of criteria and objectives. … We need to get back on track to having a forward plan of our congresses. …”

For more information, read the full message. Also, read the announcement about forthcoming member surveys on IFLA’s strategy going forward.
