New Publication from IFLA: “Access and Opportunity for All: How Libraries Contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda”

Here’s a new full text publication from IFLA made available online in the past week.

From the IFLA Web Site:

2016-08-14_15-26-39The inclusion of libraries and access to information in national and regional development plans will contribute to meeting the global United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In support of this goal, IFLA has today published a booklet of examples and recommendations for policymakers demonstrating the contribution of libraries to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There is also a supporting two-page handout.

The booklet includes stories from all types of libraries in from many countries around the world. IFLA thanks all IFLA members and partners that contributed their stories for the booklet. Additional stories will be made available online, and you can re-print the booklet and handout at any time. Print copies will also be mailed to all IFLA members and additional copies can be ordered from IFLA Headquarters.
