Global Survey for the IFLA INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR LIBRARY SERVICES TO REFUGEES, IMMIGRANTS, MIGRANTS AND ASYLUM SEEKERS

Introduction

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the Section on Library Services to People with Special Needs and the Goethe-Institut are developing Guidelines for Library Services to Refugees, Immigrants, Migrants and Asylum Seekers.

We are an international and multi-disciplinary team that comprises the working committee of the IFLA International Guidelines for Library Services to Refugees, Immigrants, Migrants and Asylum Seekers. We want to make these Guidelines as helpful as possible to all types of libraries serving communities with refugees, immigrants, migrants and asylum seekers. To do this we would like to know the range of services now being delivered by libraries to this target audience. This survey aims to gather examples of services, how they are developed, staff responses, and what cooperative alliances exist to deliver these services. We hope that you will respond, even if you provide only limited services. We will keep your information confidential unless you give us specific permission to use it.

The survey is in English but you are encouraged to respond in the language most comfortable to you. We also hope you will share this survey with your colleagues in other libraries so that we can collect the widest input possible.
