Pretoria, South Africa

This second African Library Summit is organised to create an opportunity for established leaders to engage on significant issues in support of quality library and information services and librarianship on the African continent. Hosted by the Unisa Library, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Regional Office for Africa, and the IFLA Africa Section, discussions will centre on the leadership of library and information services in the 21st century, as the dynamic digital context in which libraries currently operate demands highly strategic leadership.

Main objectives of the Summit are to:

  • establish leadership development actions for the respective library types;
  • identify programmes for leadership development;
  • locate African leadership development in the Digital Age; and
  • identify programmes pertaining to MDGs and climate change.
