IATUL Special Interest Group SIG ALICE

SIG ALICE

Special Interest Group for the Advancement of Library Services in Emerging Countries

The Special Interest Group for the Advancement of Library Services in Emerging Countries (SIG ALICE) is a newly formed special interest group of IATUL. The group was established following the IATUL Directors’ Summit on “Strategic Library Management in Emerging Countries,” held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in March 2017. This special interest group focuses on developing partnerships between IATUL and libraries and library associations in emerging countries to strengthen library services worldwide. In collaboration with these libraries and library associations, SIG ALICE contributes expertise and support for the further development of library services in emerging countries.
We meet regularly in the virtual environment, despite the challenges of our time-zones, and communicate frequently via email.
