The IFLA Internet Manifesto

Various authors, IFLA, Mar 31, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) has started circulating emails to various mailing lists asking for feedback on its Manifesto on Open Access to Scholarly Literature and Research Documentation. This manifesto states that "IFLA encourages all governments to support the unhindered flow of Internet accessible information via libraries and information services and to oppose any attempts to censor or inhibit access." The Manifesto refers to an earlier document, the Glasgow Declaration, in which similar principles are promoted. The email seeking feedback is more comprehensive, and since I couldn't find it on the IFLA site, I have mirrored a copy here to read for yourself.
