We invite you to submit a proposal for the session of Preservation and Conservation Strategic Programme at the 81st IFLA General Conference and Assembly to be held in Cape Town, South Africa in August 2015.

The theme of the session will look closely at the library networks within Africa, their response to natural disasters and man-made conflicts as well as the strength of the community.

The Preservation of Conservation Strategic Programme therefore encourages submissions around the topics of:
