EBLIDA is the European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations.
We are an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.
Subjects on which EBLIDA concentrates are European information society issues, including copyright & licensing, culture & education. We promote unhindered access to information in the digital age and the role of archives and libraries in achieving this goal.
