Knowledge and Information Centre (KIC) - Survey
As a central part of its strategy, EBLIDA is committed to the idea of establishing an online Knowledge and Information Centre (KIC) for the library community within the European Union to help Libraries argue for access for all to the benefits of the information society in all formats.
Data collected in the KIC are used for meetings with the EU Commission and the Parliament for documents related to library and copyright issues.
These data are also used by IFLA in its search to better address copyright issues at WIPO in the European context.
EBLIDA and the Latvian Library Association are conducting a survey on non-formal and informal learning activities in public libraries across Europe accessible at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LibA4EU_survey
The survey offers statistics over libraries and describes the number of Public and Academic Libraries (including National and University Libraries) their number of registered users, media stocks, number of loans, number of visits, e-visits and number of staff.
