The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) 2019-2024 Strategy was launched at the World Library and Information Congress 2019 held in Athens from 24th to 30th August. The Strategy is the result of actions which took place over two years, centred on a bottom-up process engaging librarians to design new roadmaps and to be active change agents. The purpose of this paper was to conduct an interview to understand how the IFLA Strategy may impact libraries and support librarians as change agents at local, national and regional level.
Interview was conducted face-to-face and recorded.
The IFLA Strategy aims to make librarians aware that they are the actors of the innovation process, becoming the agents of change and of dialogue at different levels.
IFLA Manager, Policy and Advocacy, Stephen Wyber, discussed his expertise to librarians to explain IFLA Strategy 2019-2024 – a Call to Action.
The authors want to thank Stephen Wyber for his courtesy and for the time he spent with them dialoguing on IFLA Strategy, enhancing their dialogue by his gentle example for a change.
The authors also want to thank Anna Maria Tammaro for her support and suggestions and for continuously inspiring them from the time they were students at the Digital Libraries Learning Master (DILL) onwards in their profession.
