IFLA will be attending this year's global Internet Governance Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, highlighting the role of libraries not only in giving people access to the Internet, but also in helping them build the skills and confidence to get the most out of it. We'll be organising a session on public access to the Internet in libraries, and taking part in other ones on Internet inclusion, digital literacy, access to information and Internet. 

IFLA will be joined remotely by others in the library community to maximise the impact of libraries at this important event.
