IFLA launches webpages on libraries and development

(18 February 2013) IFLA has launched 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 (http://www.ifla.org/ict4d)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.
