The IFLA/UNESCO Internet Manifesto Guidelines

The IFLA/UNESCO Internet Manifesto Guidelines

The guidelines take the Internet Manifesto in a new direction by moving towards a charter for users, in effect becoming a document prepared by the library community that safeguards and sets out users' rights to information on the Internet in libraries...The guidelines are based on the principles stated in the IFLA Internet Manifesto that was prepared by IFLA/FAIFE and adopted unanimously by the Council of IFLA in August 2002. The Manifesto was created out of a perceived need for a policy document that brought the traditional library values of freedom of expression and freedom of access to information into the age of the Internet.
