IFLA Publishes Guide on Marrakesh Treaty Implementation

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) released a guide for librarians that is focused on the Marrakesh Treaty, which aims to remove barriers to access to information for people with print disabilities. It provides answers to frequently asked questions and can be adapted to suit individual countries’ laws so that the largest possible number of libraries can benefit. IFLA member Victoria Owen edited the guide with support from the World Blind Union (WBU), CARL (Canadian Association of Research Libraries), EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries), and the University of Toronto. It is currently available in English, French, Spanish, and Russian.
