IFLA French Language Centre Established in the University Library, Dakar, Senegal
In May 2007 the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the Bibliothèque Centrale Université Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal signed a cooperation agreement by which BCUCAD received a status of IFLA French Language Centre for Africa. It can now be seen as a permanent representative of IFLA/HQ for the French speaking African community in Africa, as well as the other way around: it is hoped that IFLA/HQ will get better access to French speaking library and information professionals in that continent.
The IFLA French Language Centre has as its duties to promote IFLA, support IFLA’s Africa Section and liaise with IFLA/HQ.Among the priorities of the Centre are:
