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 EIFL 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 translator for the Spanish version, Virginia Inés Simón, Project Manager at the Ibero-American Network of Experts on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Argentina.
The original English language version of the guide was published in October 2015. The Spanish version was published in August 2017.
