The Partnership between IFLA and UNESCO and the Influence
Abstract The partnership between UNESCO and IFLA has developed from close cooperation to loose cooperation. UNESCO played a very important role in promoting the growth of IFLA. As UNESCO gradually shifted its attention away from libraries to documentation and information area, UNESCO’s importance to IFLA declined. Along with the change of information environment, possibilities remain for fruitful, beneficial relationships between them. The cooperation effectively promoted the librarianship development in developing countries, and promoted the cooperation between IFLA and the other international organization.
