IFLA Launches Webpages on Libraries and Development

IFLA is pleased to launch a new set of resources relating to the role libraries play in supporting development. Access to information is one of the core needs of society and libraries are stepping up and fulfilling this need through capacity building, partnerships, training, and access opportunities for everyone.
 
The new webpages look at how libraries are furthering development worldwide as well as highlighting the role of public libraries as agents for development. They share links to information resources on development projects and research, highlight what IFLA is doing to further development through libraries and how you can get involved in the process.

Development in the 21st century demands access to information – on how to start a business, or how to provide medical care to patients. IFLA believes that libraries can further development by helping people in developing countries get the information they need to access economic opportunity, improve their health or support their communities. Libraries can help governments achieve their development goals by offering access to the Internet and online information resources to citizens.
