Knowledge and Information Centre (KIC)
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.
