Libraries Educate, Copyright Reform can Help

Education is central to the work of libraries, from simply giving access to books to more formal courses on anything from literacy and language to computer skills, creative writing and other subjects. To facilitate this, libraries, schools and other institutions offering education need copyright rules that make it easy to create and use materials for teaching. IFLA, alongside 33 other organisations, has called on the EU to pass reforms that will set an example for this.
