IFLA’s Headquarters in The Hague Closing For at Least Two Weeks, Staff Will Continue to Work Remotely
From an IFLA Statement
Following announcements by the Dutch government, IFLA’s offices are closing from Monday 16 March until Tuesday 31 March, and possibly longer. We have prepared well for this moment, and therefore are putting into action our plans to ensure that we are able to continue to serve and support the global library field.
Fortunately, we have invested time and effort into ensuring all of our staff have the skills and tools necessary to carry on in their work, wherever they are. Our goal has been to ensure that we are just as able to provide all major services to our members when working remotely as from our offices in The Hague. I am happy to say that we are ready to do so.
As a result, and in the light of the guidance issued by the government of the Netherlands, and the decision of our hosts – the Royal Library of the Netherlands – to close building where our offices are located, IFLA’s staff will be working remotely from Monday 16 March until Tuesday 31 March, and possibly longer.
