Polar Libraries Colloquy
The Polar Libraries Colloquy, formerly the Northern Libraries Colloquy, was founded in 1971 for the purpose of providing a forum through which librarians and others concerned with the collection, preservation, and dissemination of polar information discuss issues of mutual interest and promote initiatives leading to improved collections and services.
From its origin, the fostering of greater international collaboration has been a central objective. The Colloquy meets biennially at venues by tradition alternating between Europe and North America.
