Inspired by "FAIR stands for Freedom of Access to Information and Resources
We're campaigning for a fair, open, democratic society where information belongs to everyone.
Social equity and strong communities
Library and information professionals strive for a society where everyone has the opportunity to participate; where everyone can read, learn and succeed in their chosen endeavour. We respect and celebrate diversity, providing safe, neutral spaces where everyone is equally welcome. We promote freedom of access to information and ideas by connecting people with knowledge, facts and creative works. Libraries help build stronger, more resilient and sustainable economies and communities.
Literacy and lifelong learning
Libraries provide opportunities for informal learning. We support literacy – not only reading and writing, but also information literacy and digital literacy. Libraries operate in primary, secondary and tertiary education settings; through public libraries, they also enable people to return to study in later life, often providing pathways into formal learning and qualifications."
