Just launched: New webpages on IFLA and the Information Society

Dear Colleagues

IFLA is pleased to launch a new set of resources relating to the role libraries play in the information society and the way they can contribute to Internet governance. The new webpages look at the different forums of the information society, such as the World Summit of the Information Society (WSIS), and the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and highlight why the involvement of libraries is important. In addition to these resources, a 2013 revised version of the IFLA Position on Internet Governance stresses our view of the multistakeholder approach to Internet governance issues, and the pages also provide information on how you can get involved with the issues at national and international levels.

It is our intention to build these resources over time. We would welcome feedback about the pages.

Please feel free to inform your network about our new pages and do not hesitate to contact us with questions or suggestions.
