World Library and Information Congress: 71st IFLA General Conference and Council

"Libraries - A voyage of discovery"

August 14th - 18th 2005, Oslo, Norway

Council Resolution

Accessibility for print disabled persons


IFLA has two Sections, Libraries for the Blind and Libraries Serving Disadvantages Persons, dealing with accessibility problems both in regard to formats and physical accessibility of libraries. Among the members of the Libraries for the Blind Section are people with a print impairment. Today these members can access very little of the content of IFLA’s Website and IFLA’s publications.

We would also remind IFLA that among its members there are many organisations with this special competence, who could help and give advice to make IFLA information accessible for all.

Text of resolution:

Council urges IFLA’s Governing Board from now on to make all IFLA information and publications as well as the website accessible for print impaired people.

Name of those submitting the resolution:
Beatrice Christensen Sköld
Lina Kouzi
