Draft Council of Europe/EBLIDA Guidelines on Library legislation and policy in Europe
In 2022, the Council of Europe Steering Committee for Culture, Heritage and Landscape (CDCPP) examined the Council of Europe / EBLIDA Guidelines on Library Legislation and Policy in Europe.
These Guidelines update those released in 2000, which have been highly influential in shaping policies and inspiring library-related legislation throughout the Council of Europe Member States. Still today, they are a base of reference for individual libraries working in often challenging local situations, as well as for regional and municipal administrators willing to restructure local library systems.
With the aim of increasing the value and usefulness of this text, the CDCPP may envisage to convert the Guidelines into a new Council of Europe recommendation with a revised title, thus providing more visibility and impact for the guidelines.
