Call for Hosting International Congress of Medical Librarianship (ICML) 2021

IFLA - სამ, 06/06/2017 - 21:29
1. Introduction

The IFLA Health and Biosciences Libraries Section (HBS) invites expressions of interest to host the 13th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML) in 2021.  The ICML takes place in a city selected through a competitive process.

The Congress normally attracts 500+ attendees from around the world.

The host organisation will be responsible for the Congress budget which will be generated from delegate registrations, exhibition sales, sponsorship and industry and government support.  There will be no funding from IFLA.

The Congress programme runs over several days, usually Monday to Friday, including plenary and concurrent sessions, posters, continuing education seminars/workshops, tours and a trade exhibition.  The host organisation is responsible for working with the Congress Planning Committee (CPC).

Expressions of interests with all required information should be submitted by 31 August 2017 to Professor Maria G. N. Musoke, Chair, IFLA Health & Biosciences Libraries Section; email maria.gnmusoke@yahoo.com

Please include in the email subject field “Confidential – ICML 2017 Expression of Interest”.

Brief about ICML

The first ICML was held in London by leaders of medical libraries not long after World War II.  Around that period the Armed Forces Medical Library (USA) was being transformed and would eventually become the National Library of Medicine in 1956.  Topics included library education, administration and operations, the high costs of journals and the history of medicine.  UNESCO had established an international exchange of publications in medical libraries which was helping those countries impacted by war to re-establish medical library services.  At the inaugural meeting, the “difficult state of libraries in Asia, Africa, Australia and Latin America was of great concern”.

During the Regional Workshop in Egypt on 21-22 May, MENA library representatives from 17 countries gathered in lively discussions about how a united library field can tackle to challenges of the future.

Next stop: Buenos Aires, Argentina!

To continue with what has now become a Global Vision tradition, the MENA region colleagues asked IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner to forward the following greetings and inspired advice to the colleagues in the Latin America and the Caribbean region, thereby passing the torch of IFLA’s Global Vision Discussion from MENA region to the Latin America and the Caribbean region:

Join and you will never regret it! 

Work as a team! 

We need your ideas and your opinions so we can work together. 

We encourage you, colleagues in Buenos Aires to join the IFLA family!

The next IFLA Global Vision Regional Workshop will take place from 8-9 June 2017 at the Library of the National Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We look forward to continuing this Global Vision journey in the Latin America and the Caribbean region!
