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 22nd Annual IATUL Conference was held on May 28th – June 1, 2001 at Delft University of Technology’s Library in Delft, Netherlands. The 22nd Annual IATUL Conference’s theme was “Stratum Continuum of Information”.
