IFLA’s New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG), founded in 2004, is an open global network for library and information science (LIS) new professionals and supporters. We are a special interest group within the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), affiliated with the Management of Library Associations Section (MLAS).
NPSIG is an initiative for and by new professionals.
Our goal is to welcome new information professionals to the field by hosting virtual and in-person workshops, information sessions, and conference events. We facilitate international networking opportunities for early career librarians and LIS students around the globe.
We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary at the WLIC in Lyon, France. For more information on our founding and the past 10 years of the group, see this article on IFLA’s website.
