Document Delivery and Resource Sharing Section

Division: Library Collections

The Section on Document Delivery and Resource Sharing is the forum in IFLA for libraries and associations concerned with making information in all formats available throughout the world through a variety of resource sharing and document supply techniques.

The Section's primary objective is to extend and improve document delivery and interlending both nationally and internationally through the use of new technologies and increased cooperation among libraries and document suppliers.

The Section monitors developments and provides information to its membership through a section website, twice-yearly newsletter, programs at IFLA conferences, support of document delivery workshops, and cooperative projects with international organizations.
