IFLA regularly awards travel grants for attendance at its annual conference. For the 2011 conference in San Juan, PR, 40 grants were awarded to attendees from Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and Oceania, Africa, and developing countries. Recipients were required to be a member of their national library association and write a report on their experiences at the conference. Several of the reports are now available here; they give an interesting perspective on the conference from a first-time attendee’s point of view. More reports will be added as they become available.
