2. 演講摘要 Abstract
IFLA 擁有約 1,200 名志願者成員組成的活躍網絡，在其專業部門工作，代表了圖書館和資訊領域中優秀的人才。IFLA與所有積極的同仁一同為圖書館服務制定專業議程和制定標準，改善資訊和文化遺產資源的取用，並倡導將圖書館置於地方和全球政策的核心位置。基於與聯合國和其他國際組織和機構建立的良好關係，IFLA還充當全球圖書館界與超國家領導人和決策者之間的中心橋梁。藉由積極倡導圖書館的價值，IFLA鼓勵人們廣泛且深入了解圖書館和資訊服務的核心價值。
IFLA is an independent, international, non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation. Acting as the “Global Voice of Libraries” IFLA puts libraries on the global stage and supports their work by promoting high standards of provision and delivery of library and information services and by representing the interests of IFLA’s members throughout the world. Therefore, IFLA is a reference point across libraries’ activities, providing a forum for discussion and learning as well as direction and inspiration for all librarians.
With its members and active network of around 1,200 volunteers, working in its Professional Units IFLA represents the brightest minds of the library and information profession. Together with all active colleagues, IFLA works to set the professional agenda and develop standards for library services, to improve access to information and cultural heritage resources, and to advocate for the place of libraries at the heart of local and global policies. Based on well-established relations with the United Nations and other international organisations and bodies, IFLA also works as the central interface and between the global library field and supranational leaders and decision makers. By advocating for libraries, IFLA encourages widespread understanding of the value of good library and information services.
In her talk, Director Barbara Lison will talk about IFLA’s activities to support the global library field. She will especially focus on the IFLA Strategy, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the IFLA Governance Reform.

IFLA produces a variety of materials and tools to help libraries win and maintain support for their work, helping them to show concretely the difference they can make in the lives of individuals and communities.
Much of this work is structured around the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provides a comprehensive and shared roadmap not only for governments, but for all stakeholders, everywhere.
Through their global application, the emphasis they give to the importance of access to information, and the opportunities for engagement, the SDGs provide a powerful structure for talking about the difference libraries can make.
IFLA’s Library Map of the World is at the heart of this effort, providing data and demonstrating impact through SDG Stories and country profiles. Building on these, IFLA develops analyses and other tools which can support advocacy.
Our Development and Access to Information (DA2I) report tracks progress towards SDG commitments and provides expert insights on how information and libraries make a difference in delivering on the Goals.
You find further resources explaining the contribution of libraries to development on the supporting national and regional advocacy page, including our booklet on Access and Opportunity for All, as well as the 2014 Lyon Declaration signed by over 600 organisations.
In addition to these flagship initiatives, IFLA produces a wide variety of articles and papers from across library sectors, designed to show contributions across the different dimensions of sustainable development.
We also strongly encourage you to use the materials prepared and shared by our Members to support your own work.
