International Relations Committee

Interested in learning more about international issues related to library collections, technical services and standards and ALCTS representation on IFLA Section Standing Committees? Join the ALCTS International Relations Committee (IRC) at its ALA Midwinter meeting on Saturday, January 20th, 10:30 am-12:30 pm. Current ALCTS reps to IFLA Sections will report on the August 2006 IFLA Conference which was held in Seoul, and will discuss what the IRC can do to facilitate their activities.

In 2004, IRC received a new charge, which has given the committee greater responsibility for coordinating international relations within the division, for reaching out to counterpart groups of librarians abroad, and for encouraging ALCTS participation (collective and individual) in international conferences and other related activities.

For additional information, contact Wanda Dole, Chair, International Relations Committee.
