IATUL Fall Seminar - Connecting in a disconnected world.

Date of the event





We invite both current community members and other people interested in IATUL's activities to the online seminar on December 15, 2021.

During the meeting, we will talk about the mission and activities of the organisation, as well as the benefits of belonging to the IATUL community. In addition, Special Interest Groups (SIGs), analysing and developing the most critical issues related to the activities of academic libraries around the world, will also present their activities and achievements.

IATUL offers an influential and inclusive community for leaders of university and research libraries from around the world. It brings together library directors and managers from over 70 countries to exchange ideas, expand professional networks, create new collaborations and work together on multinational projects exploring the current significant challenges.

What can IATUL offer to its members? You will be a part of a strong network of research libraries in a challenging and fast-moving environment. You can collaborate, innovate and connect with peers from around the world by attending the conferences and workshops offered by IATUL. Being part of the IATUL organisation you can apply for the International Study Programme and work on your professional development.

The organiser of the seminar is the Library of the Gdańsk University of Technology supported by the IATUL Board of Directors.
