Abstract

The Marrakesh Treaty for Visually Impaired People: a focus on (Public) Libraries in Europe

This paper aims at raising awareness on the activities of EBLIDA (with IFLA and EIFL) on the Marrakesh Treaty at EU level as well as showing how its implementation is perceived/happening in some countries in Europe and whether it includes libraries (or not). Considering the level of development of the topic, the impact on (public) libraries in Europe is not yet known. As a result, the paper explains the current situation and how some key countries in Europe are addressing the issue.
