Building a Global Network: International librarianship at the confluence of cultures, practices, and standards At the 1926 Prague International Conference, French Librarian, Gabriel Henriot, proposed the establishment a permanent international library committee that could take care of the international relations among libraries and create the necessary conditions for the mutual international co-operation of librarians. This committee soon spawned the International Federation of Library Associations and the creation of an international network of librarians that has expanded and persisted for nearly ninety years. To support the conference theme of “Libraries, Citizens, Societies: Confluence for Knowledge” the IFLA History Special Interest Group seeks papers that feature historical scholarship on the development and impact of international library networks as they have worked to develop the profession, articulate standards, and promote access to knowledge.
