IATUL hosts several different types of events in close cooperation with local partners. The main event is the Annual IATUL conference, with regularly about 200 or more delegates. Further, there is the yearly IATUL Seminar in autumn. Additional Directors’ Summits or Focus Workshops may also be offered in response to proposals from member libraries.
All these events aim to support a professional and close exchange among the member libraries by giving the possibility to meet international colleagues in person. The focus is on creating long-lasting positive synergies from IATUL’s strong global network of institutions. All events stand out due to the high level of professional competence as the participants are library directors and their senior managers. Members and delegates from more than 70 countries guarantee an international atmosphere and international perspectives on current issues in the library world.
