Preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of indigenous peoples is a relevant task for every library, especially under conditions of sociocultural changes caused by the transformation of society value orientations, globalization of the information sphere and digitization. Librarianship makes a significant contribution to solving this issue.

Library professionals from Brazil, Colombia, India, New Zealand, Russia,
Sri Lanka, South Africa and Vietnam will share their experience in implementing projects on this topic and present their views on the role of libraries in preserving the historical memory and civilizational identity of indigenous peoples.
