ABOUT THE RESOURCE
The Marrakesh Treaty: an EIFL Guide for Libraries provides an introduction to the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities, its key provisions and recommendations for national implementation in order to maximize the opportunities it offers to libraries to increase the reading materials available to persons with print disabilities.
The guide is in two parts. Part One is a straightforward introduction to the treaty, its key provisions, and the role of libraries in contributing to the treaty’s objectives. Part Two provides a practical interpretation of the major technical provisions, with, recommendations, in line with public interest goals of enabling access to knowledge.
EIFL would like to thank the team that produced the Portuguese edition: translation by Walter Couto, and revisions by members of the Brazilian Copyright and Open Access Commission under the direction of FEBAB, the Brazilian Federation of Library Associations, Information Scientists and Institutions.
The original English language version of the guide was published in October 2015. The Portuguese edition was produced in July 2020.
