The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Presidential meeting is happening this weekend at the First Nations House of Learning.
The theme of the international meeting is on a topic of growing importance and interest in the world of culture and information: Indigenous Knowledges: Local priorities, Global contexts. This meeting will be the opportunity for all those interested in Indigenous and traditional knowledge, its creation, organization and access, to better understand the local and global issues under discussion in various parts of the world and by many types of cultural, heritage, and community groups and organizations.
UBC Library welcomes the international visitors to our campus. For those who are unable to make the sessions at the Longhouse on Friday and Saturday, webcasts are available online. For more information on the meeting, please visit the IFLA website.
