Abstract (Document Summary)

Lyon, France, sits at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone rivers. The geographically astute recognized the allusion in the theme of the 80th IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) World Library and Information Congress (WLIC), which was Libraries, Citizens, Societies: Confluence for Knowledge. More than 4,000 librarians and library aficionados from more than 100 countries gathered Aug 16, 2014-Aug 22, 2014, to listen to talks, participate in discussions, learn about public policy issues, and conduct the business of IFLA. IFLA also announced that it has received a 4-year grant of $4.9 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Global libraries initiative to be used for international advocacy activities in support of access to digital information. The 80th IFLA WLIC lived up to its theme, providing many confluences for knowledge, bringing together people and ideas, and spurring activities that connect libraries, citizens, and societies.
