Message from the President

Welcome to IATUL!

The International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) offers an influential and inclusive community for leaders of university and research libraries worldwide. It brings together library directors and managers from over 70 countries to exchange ideas, expand professional networks, create new collaborations and work together on international projects exploring the current significant challenges.

The importance of our Association has never been higher. The pandemic and its consequences highlight the need for collaborative and innovative approaches to problem-solving. There is no better time for reimagining the role of university and research libraries as we seek answers to global challenges.
