The mission of the International Relations Round Table (IRRT) is to develop the interests of librarians in activities and problems in the field of international library relations. Members of the IRRT serve as a channel of communication and counsel between the International Relations Committee and the members of the American Library Association, and they provide hospitality and information to visitors from abroad. The IRRT arranges programs and business meetings and appoints representatives to attend meetings of the other professional groups.

Membership  is open to all ALA members.
