On 14 November, from 10.10 - 11.10am, the Dynamic Coalition on Public Access in Libraries (DC-PAL) will organize a round table discussion on the important role that public access to the internet through public libraries can play in achieving the UN Sustainable Development goals. EIFL is a founder of the DC-PAL, which was created by EIFL and IFLA (the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) at the Internet Governance Forum in 2011. The DC-PAL aims to engage the IGF community in discussion about public access to the internet and the role and potential of libraries.
The IGF is a multistakeholder space that brings together stakeholders from government, industry and civil society to discuss public policy issues relating to the internet. See the IGF 2018 programme here.
