Dear IATUL Colleagues,

This year, thanks to a team of engaged conference organizers, we will soon convene for the 42nd IATUL Annual Conference 2022 in Miami. Due to the pandemic and related international travel difficulties for some, we are offering a hybrid conference, for those who are not able to attend in person.

Our IATUL General Assembly will be held as an online and/or in-person meeting on Tuesday 14th June, 11:00-12:00 EST via the online conference platform PheedLoop.

The General Assembly will allow the members of IATUL to get to know and review all of the great work done through the last year, in circumstances that continue to present challenges. We would also like to present plans for the upcoming year.

#SaveUkraine

IATUL joins IFLA and other international associations in deploring the military aggression by Russia currently underway in Ukraine.

This action has caused significant loss of life, including children, created a humanitarian crisis, and placed at risk the rich cultural heritage of Ukraine. IATUL members are joining the international library community efforts to protect unique Ukrainian research and knowledge, and we are reaching out to our member in Ukraine to offer support.

We encourage IATUL members to take similar action to support our Ukraine colleagues, assist Ukrainian refugees and share accurate information about the current situation in Ukraine.

Please see the Ukrainian Library Association appeal for ways to assist.

IATUL is an association that promotes the advancement of university libraries, access to knowledge and information literacy.
