The IFLA RELINDIAL SIG (Religions: Libraries and Dialogue Special Interest Group) and the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) welcomed attendees to a timely discussion on Fostering Global Communication Among Religions and Libraries.

A majority of the world's population professes to a faith tradition of their ancestors, their country, or both. More than ever, we live in times calling for knowledge and respect for traditions of other people. Multiple speakers, panelists, and paper presenters spoke on how religions and libraries are changing the nature of interfaith dialogue through their services and activities.

Held on Friday, August 12, 2016, at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, OH, the event preceded the 82nd IFLA General Conference and Assembly, though registration or attendance of IFLA was not required to attend the RELINDIAL meeting.
