The IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) is the most international professional and trade event for the library and information services sector.
IFLA brings high-level speakers, experts in every aspect of the profession, and library and information workers from around the world together to help set the international agenda and explore issues and developments of interest to the global library field.
