President’s Welcome

Message from the President

Dr. Charles Eckmann

Welcome to IATUL!

The International Association of University Libraries is a global association that convenes leaders of university and research libraries from over 70 countries. 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. IATUL offers library directors and senior managers a unique forum in which to exchange ideas, expand professional networks, form new collaborations, and work together on multinational projects addressing our unique and shared goals.
