The International Association of Scientific and Technological University Libraries (IATUL) is a voluntary international organization which provides a forum for the exchange of ideas relevant to librarianship in technological universities throughout the world. It also provides library directors and senior managers an opportunity to develop a collaborative approach to solving common problems.

The 12th Biennial IATUL Conference was held on June 8th – June 12th, 1987 in Helsinki, Sweden. The 12th Biennial IATUL Conference’s theme was “Libraries of Technological Universities and Equivalent Institutions.”
