About Us


The International Librarianship Training Program (ILTP) at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) is a program to train librarians on the latest techniques in the field of library and information science, especially in Egypt, the Arab Region, and Africa. The Program aims at promoting the importance of learning and knowledge sharing for librarians through the provision of training programs to support them with knowledge and professional experience in various fields of library science, as a continuity to the BA objectives and its leading role in supporting the library and information profession.

The ILTP is based on the combination between academic and practical perspectives. It covers various areas of the library profession by providing two basic types of training: Integrated programs, courses, workshops and separate lectures.

The Educational Services Section under the Networks and Outreach Department is responsible for the ILTP.
