During a three-hour meeting the representatives of libraries, public and professional organizations, IFLA and RLA Sections Standing Committees and members of the National Library Association "Libraries of the Future" discussed a variety of issues, concerns and challenges to the professional library community.

The meeting followed by a wide online-survey of the Russian experts on the questions proposed by the IFLA Headquarters and translated by the IFLA Russian Language Centre at the Russian State Library.
