UBC Library is the latest academic research library to have signed the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Lyon Declaration on Access to Information and Development. The Declaration, launched in August at the annual World Library and Information Congress in France, is an advocacy document drafted by IFLA and a number of strategic partners in the library and development communities between January and May 2014.

The Declaration calls for access to information as an individual and civic right and calls upon United Nations member states to make an international commitment to ensure that everyone has access to, and is able to understand, use and share the information necessary to promote sustainable development and democratic societies.

UBC Library encourages our Canadian colleagues to recognize the importance of this Declaration by adding their organization to the list of signatories available online.
