IFLA WLIC 2021 – get your e-Library ticket now!


This year’s World Library and Information Congress (WLIC), the annual big-tent event put on by the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA), was delivered virtually over a three-day period. In pre-pandemic times, WLICs take place over a six- or seven-day period, with hundreds of standing committee meetings, paper sessions, governance meetings, poster and vendor exhibitions and cultural events taking place. This years virtual alternative strove to bring together some of the magic of being together in-person, whilst also delivering new kinds of content and sessions, and also across multiple time-zones to a global audience.

One of the major benefits of this approach is that all of the sessions, and many of the Q&A sessions, were recorded for future consultation of any registered participant. IFLA has just announced, too, a WLIC “e-Library ticket” for EU50 which provides access to all of the recorded content from WLIC for 12 months.

This year’s congress had a number of fantastic sessions which were directly on, or intersected with, themes of cultural heritage, rare books and special collections. Below, find our starter for ten list of sessions which might be of interest to the IFLA Rare Book and Special Collections members and the wider sector:
