IFLA: Library Services to People with Special Needs Section

IFLA LogoThe International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions’ LSN was originally created as part of¬†Subcommittee on Hospital Libraries in 1931 as a means to promote library services (including bibliotherapy) to those that were hospitalized and homebound. Renamed for the 6th time in 2008, the¬†Library Service to Special Needs Section of the IFLA is a forum for library and professionals across the globe to discuss improving services to those not only in healthcare facilities, but also all library patrons with disabilities. As this section covers services to all who cannot access traditional library services, prison library issues are also covered. The LSN digital newsletter and publication archive is available on the IFLA website.
