‘The Marrakesh Treaty: Getting Started’ is a practical, interactive workshop for librarians on how to start using the Marrakesh Treaty for people with print disabilities. It is aimed at countries in Eastern, Central Europe and the Baltic States that have joined the Marrakesh Treaty, and where implementation into national law is completed or advanced. Participants from Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Russia, as well as Finland, Canada, the UK and the US, are expected to attend.
The two-day workshop will focus especially on cross-border exchange of accessible format materials, so that libraries can take full advantage of their new rights under the Treaty to improve services and increase accessible format works available to their users. It will contribute to the development of a training module that can be used for future workshops in other countries and regions.

The workshop is organized by EIFL in cooperation with the Lithuanian Library for the Blind (LAB), IFLA Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities Section (LPD), and the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, Canada.
