About MetLib

The Metropolitan Libraries (MetLib) conference is an annual platform organized by the MetLib section of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), primarily for libraries of cities with 400,000 or more inhabitants, where members exchange ideas and information on a range of professional topics, including library networks, buildings, automation, training , research, public relations, and service to special groups.  

Formerly known as the Round Table of the International Association of Metropolitan Libraries (INTAMEL), the conference was held in Prague for the first time in 1966. Two years later, it was founded as a Round Table belonging to the Public Libraries Section of IFLA and since then, an annual conference has been held in many major cities around the world. The last MetLib conference took place in May 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland, and was a great success.
