About the Latin America and the Caribbean Section


The general objective of the Section is to encourage activities related to access to information and knowledge. The Section gives priority to promotion of literacy, promotion of reading, and application of new technologies, as well as to the services of libraries and information centres in the region. The Section maintains close relationships of mutual support and exchange with all the professional groups of IFLA, acting as intermediaries for those groups when they develop activities and projects for the region, and especially with the ALP Core Programme.
