IPA President, Michiel Kolman, and Secretary General, José Borghino, attended the 84th World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) of the International Federation of Library Organisations and Institutions (IFLA).

The IPA has met with representatives of the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM) and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) in London for the first of this group’s biannual meetings for 2017. This was the 33rd time the three organisations had gathered to discuss how publishers and libraries can collaborate to safeguard sustainable access to information in the knowledge environments of the future.

Civic Agenda EU has published a comprehensive study of library e-lending schemes in Europe and North America, produced on behalf of various library associations. Despite the study leaning heavily towards the library perspective, it does provide important insight into which strategy is most likely to produce sustainable e-lending models.
