Survey: accesible libraries

Offer-people-with-disabilities-access-to-information-and-get-more-users-to-the-libraryDid you know that only 5% of the information published in the world is fully accessible to people with disabilities who have difficulty accessing reading?While we work for free access to information for all, many people are unable to access library services because of their living conditions and / or physical, mental or cognitive disabilities.

The United Nations has asked IFLA and its Section on the Library Service for People with Special Needs (LSN) to participate in a major project on the service of persons with disabilities, providing information on the survey and showing the value of libraries in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

NPSIG invites you to participate in this initiative on behalf of your library association, national library or individual library: we will demonstrate the strength of our unified library field by answering the following survey

NPSIG survey for #iflaGlobalVision

Hi, Everyone!

We would like to bring you the possibility of participating in the initiative of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) through this Global Vision survey to help prioritize the actions that a connected library field can take.
We firmly believe that a field of  connected librarians will be able to achieve one of the true potential of libraries: to build literate, informed and participatory societies.
Give it a little time to complete it, because your contribution is very important to achieve these goals. ❤
You have time until July 4, and then the answers will be sent to IFLA to produce a report on Vision Global to be announced in early 2018.
Please, click here to fill in the form. Ready, set, go!

Thanks!
