Call for Volunteers: IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2017
February 18, 2017
During IFLA WLIC 2017 in Wrocław, Poland, volunteer opportunities will be available to foreign librarians. On behalf of the National Committee of the IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2017, the Polish Librarians’ Association invites librarians from other countries to take part in volunteering during the IFLA WLIC.
About 300 volunteers are sought to assist the IFLA participants during the conference.
Financial benefits of volunteering include:
- free registration (if you commit to at least three half days of volunteering),
- complimentary lunches on the Congress site on the days of service and
- a certificate of attendance in IFLA volunteering.
During the volunteering service, each volunteer will be covered, free of charge, by a casualty insurance.
For IFLA volunteers we offer accommodations in comfortable rooms in the students’ halls of residence of the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, located near WLIC 2017 venue. The booking form will be available from April.
Contact person: IFLA WLIC Volunteer Coordinator Joanna Golczyk, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
