Resources for Access to Information


Libraries are major sources of information for society and they serve as the guardians of the public’s access to information more generally.  The advent of the digital world has revolutionized how the public obtains its information and how libraries provide it.  Libraries help ensure that Americans can access the information they need–regardless of age, education, ethnicity, language, income, physical limitations or geographic barriers. Core values of the library community such as equal access to information, intellectual freedom, the right to privacy, and the objective stewardship and provision of information must be preserved and strengthened in the evolving digital world.
