IFLA WLIC 2019

After years of planning, it is hard to believe that the 84th World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) is coming to a close. What a congress it has been! WLIC 2018 was exhilarating and the National Committee Malaysia delivered an exhilarating event.

Once again, the IFLA WLIC offered the global library profession world-class sessions and opportunities to connect.

Over 3500 delegates from over 110 countries networked, presented and learned about the contemporary issues concerning the library field. Global is the operative word because thousands more tuned in to key sessions via our live stream.  If you missed them, recordings are already available on our YouTube Channel.
