Details: Next year's IFLA conference comes back to Europe, to the city of Wroclaw in Poland.

To give you in the flavour of Poland, ILIG is bringing its Informal Talks to Edinburgh where Polish Librarian Sylwia Grabowska will give an overview of Polish Libraries and her work in Scotland and overseas.

Sylwia moved to Glasgow in 2013 to study for an MSc in Information and Library Studies at the University of Strathclyde. Prior to coming to Glasgow, she studied MA of Polish Philology with specialisation of Scientific Information and Bibliology and worked as a librarian in a regional pedagogical library and a high school library in the Polish city of Elblag, near Gdansk. She is also a qualified teacher. She is currently working as College Librarian in the Scottish School of Christian Mission in Glasgow, leading project development of the library, including cooperation with libraries in Malawi and Pakistan.

Sylwia will give an overview of the history of Polish libraries and development of the Polish librarianship; she will discuss current legal situation, modern issues and talk over major Polish libraries, with focus on the National Library of Poland; and share her experience of work in various libraries across countries.
