In this thesis I will trace the history of the International Federation of Library Associations from the conceivement of the idea, in Prague in 1926 to its creation in Edinburgh in 1927 and through its early years up to World War II. As sources I have mainly used the proceedings of the annual meetings, published in the first eleven volumes of the "Actes du Comité International des Bibliothèques". No doubt a careful study of the archives of the Federation would yield further interesting information on the development in these early years, but this would have led me too far for the present purpose.
