IFLA/UNESCO Multicultural Library Manifesto Toolkit (2015)

The IFLA/UNESCO Multicultural Library Manifesto was developed by the IFLA Section on Libraries Serving Multicultural Populations (old name) in 2006 and it was endorsed by the IFLA Governing Board and UNESCO in 2009.

The primary goal of the Manifesto is to assist libraries throughout the world in developing and advocating for multicultural services. The Manifesto sets the stage for libraries to address their community’s unique cultural and linguistic needs through dedicated services and strategies.

An accompanying toolkit has been developed to give practical approaches on how libraries can apply the concepts in the manifesto.

Tips for inclusive meetings and webinars

These tips were edited and compiled in 2021 by Leslie Kuo and Teona Shainidze Krebs, with suggestions and contributions from the MCULTP Standing Committee and the larger MCULTP community, including the Berlin Public Libraries Working Group on Diversity, Lingua Pankow (a coalition of immigrant organisations in Berlin), and the Pikes Peak Library District (Colorado, USA).
