Secciones de IFLA relacionadas con la accesibilidad

IFLA cuenta con dos secciones dedicadas a temas de accesibilidad dedicadas a distintos aspectos:

– la Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities Section es la más específica, ya que está dedicada especialmente a los servicios para este colectivo, tal y como se establece en su misión:

The mission of the IFLA LPD is to advocate for library services that are equitable and accessible for persons with a print disability. Supported by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, where it is stated that print disabled people have the right to equal access to books, knowledge and information at the same time, cost and quality as everyone else, and recognizing the fact that as of today only 5% of the world’s published information is fully accessible to persons with a print disability.

– la Library Services to People with Special Needs Section (la antigua Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons Section) cubre un espectro más amplio de usuarios:

The Section for Library Services to People with Special Needs Section is concerned with library and information services to all those groups within the community who for whatever reason are unable to make use of conventional library services. These groups include people in hospitals and prisons, the elderly in nursing homes and care facilities, the house-bound, the deaf and the physically and developmentally disabled. This Section provides an international forum for the discussion of ideas, sharing of experiences and development of projects designed to promote and improve the effectiveness of library and information services to such groups, and the promotion of national and international cooperation at all levels.”
