Newspaper e-publishing trends: the stewardship role of libraries
Both printed and online newspapers are critical sources of primary information for library users worldwide. Whether it be for historical research on the politics of the day or society as it was, or for survival information needed to make a living now. Information is a key component required for sustainable development, democratic societies and economic growth. The equitable right and freedom of access to information contained in newspapers should be guaranteed by libraries.
The IFLA 2015 Pre-Conference will focus on the African context.
