66th IFLA Council and General
"The people of the book invite the keepers of the book."Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Israeli National Organising Committee and the Israeli library community, we warmly invite all IFLA members to Jerusalem for the 66th Conference in the year 2000.
The IFLA Conference is the most important professional international event within the library and information community. It brings together delegates, experts and suppliers from all over the world, to meet, exchange ideas, share experiences, introduce new technologies and to influence the development of libraries and information centres, both nationally and globally.
The Israeli National Organising Committee has chosen the theme:
"Information for Co-operation: Creating the Global Library of the Future"
for the 66th IFLA Conference in Jerusalem. The key word of the theme is co-operation, towards which we shall all be aiming.
It is to these goals - international, multilingual, multicultural co-operation throughout the library and information community - that the 66th IFLA Conference in Jerusalem commits itself and invites all of its colleagues throughout the world to participate, contribute and celebrate in Jerusalem in the year 2000.
Jerusalem, the venue of the conference, is best characterised by its name - Yerushalayim - in Hebrew, which means "city of peace". The city has a history of over 4000 years and is holy to the three monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is famous for its beauty and unique atmosphere - a blend of ancient and modern. Jerusalem is the most suitable setting for the 66th IFLA Conference, especially in the year 2000, the start of a new millenium and a new beginning.
The Israeli library community is waiting to welcome you all warmly in Jerusalem.
