(5 January 2015) The Manifesto was developed by the IFLA Section on Libraries Serving Multicultural Populations (old name) in 2006 and it was endorsed by the IFLA Governing Board and UNESCO in 2008.
The primary goal of the Manifesto is to assist libraries throughout the world in developing and advocating for multicultural services. The Manifesto sets the stage for libraries to address their community’s unique cultural and linguistic needs through dedicated services and strategies.
In 2014 an accompanying toolkit has been developed to give practical approaches on how libraries can apply the concepts in the manifesto.
The IFLA/UNESCO Multicultural Library Manifesto and Toolkit is now available.
