The IILF Proceedings represent on-the-ground, real-time initiatives from IILF communities, and serve as a valuable record for the state of Indigenous librarianship around the world. The Proceedings will encapsulate the heart of our collective vision and goals, as we continue to contribute to the growth and enrichment of Indigenous agency and abundance within the realm of information management and libraries.

This IILF's Proceedings will be published as an online Open Access resource using the Pressbooks platform.

All IILF Presenters - of both panels and posters - are invited to contribute to the Proceedings.
