The Section on Document Delivery and Resource Sharing will hold a two-day meeting August 10-11, 2016 at the Library of Congress, Washington DC, USA.

The Section on Document Delivery and Resource Sharing is the forum in IFLA for libraries and associations concerned with making information in all formats available throughout the world through a variety of resource sharing and document supply techniques.

The section strongly believes that information is for the use of our users and facilitating the use of information across institutional and national boundaries is our duty as resource sharing professionals. The section also analyses the changes and developments in the current information environment as well as critically incorporating technological developments. The section provides guidance and leadership in resource sharing principles and practices for the benefit of our users.

The section supports the idea of the global library as a networked resource sharing organism that enables access to resources through the collaboration of libraries worldwide.
