The World Report 2001

"Libraries & Intellectual Freedom"

The IFLA/FAIFE World Report on Libraries and Intellectual Freedom, published in 2001, was the first attempt to systematically collect information on freedom of access to information related to libraries and information services and their customers and provided a picture on the status of intellectual freedom with regards to libraries and information services and librarianship in a global perspective.

Reflecting the achievements of the first four years of IFLA/FAIFE activities, the report concludes on the state of intellectual freedom relating to libraries in 42 of the world's nations.
