Women, Information and Libraries Special Interest Group
Sponsoring body: Management of Library Associations Section
Women play a crucial role in realising basic human rights for all and in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDG's). Meeting the information needs of women is a major contribution of the library field to global development.
The Discussion Group focuses on women as users of library and information services, as workers in the library field, and as providers of information.
The overarching strategic framework is formed by the UN treaties, programs and initiatives related to women and information to create a fruitful link between IFLA and relevant international organisations.
