Abstract

Librarians speak to the world! The way libraries can weigh in on multi-stakeholder forums: the example of WSIS+10

What is WSIS and why is it important for libraries? Why is it important for IFLA? What are some of the developments that will impact libraries in the future and how will the outcome of WSIS negotiations make libraries stronger? This paper approaches these questions and emphasizes the role that librarians can play in multi-stakeholder forums to influence international regulations. It shows how librarians have been assigned a historic task in the age of globalization.
