A key national policy goal for Mongolia envisions the development of a knowledge-based society, and the provision of public ICT access - 70% of public libraries in Mongolia now have internet access, and Mongolia’s first library law was pending discussion in government. However, the copyright rules that govern library services don’t fit with recent technological changes and current policy ambitions. When the copyright law was under review in 2013 librarians, led by Mongolian Libraries Consortium and the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, became active in the review process to ensure that the new law meets the needs of libraries and their users in Mongolia today.
The project results are described in a case study and illustrated in a project poster, one of eight EIFL-IP funded projects in 2013 for advocacy campaigns in support of copyright law reform in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
