Title: Beyond Access: Perceptions of libraries as development partners
Author: Fellows, Michelle; Coward, Chris; Sears, Rebecca
Abstract: Libraries are typically overlooked as partners in development. This despite the existence of 230,000 public libraries around the world, 73% located in the developing world, and despite the widespread recognition that access to information plays an essential role in development. This report examines the question: what are the perceptions of key decision makers around the world regarding public libraries and their potential to serve a more prominent role in development initiatives? This report looks at participants’ impressions of libraries, views towards forming partnerships with libraries, and provides examples of successful projects.
