About the Whitepaper - Inclusive Libraries

The need to access libraries is not one that we need to contend. Libraries provide us with a vast resource of knowledge whereby a person can access books, periodicals, newspapers, journals, etc. Today with the advent of digital libraries, collections are stored in digital formats and accessible by computers, also.

Persons with disabilities should also have access to both that is physical libraries as well as digital libraries.

Libraries are also a point of access whereby resources can be pooled and used by a large cross-section of the society. Therefore, making libraries inclusive is important for the growth of India's population.
