International Federation of Library Associations: IFLA’s New Website Goes Live

From the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA):

IFLA’s new website is now live! Reflecting our new structures, and with strong attention both to ease of navigation and accessibility, it provides a new key reference point for the global library field.

With such a wide range of professional units and other volunteer groups – together with our Headquarters – constantly working to exchange ideas and produce tools to benefit the field, IFLA’s website has long established itself as a rich source of knowledge and insights.

Bringing it up to date, and so making it as easy as possible for as many of our field as possible to benefit from our content was therefore a key part of IFLA’s Strategy 2019-2024.

After many months of intensive work, we are therefore now proud to share the results – the new ifla.org website!

Accompanying this improved layout is a dedicated repository for digital objects, with over 1200 objects so far, in compliance with Dublin Core metadata standards.

In the coming months, we will be expanding the range of content available in all IFLA official languages.

We will also continuously be adding new content to the repository, including by integrating the existing IFLA Library which holds papers and posters presented at World Library and Information Congresses since 2013.

While not all elements of our previous website will appear on our new one, we will soon be making available a fully archived version of the past IFLA.org.
