IFLA (The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) is the leading international body representing the interests of library and information services and their users. It is the global voice of the library and information profession. IFLA has several 'core activities', one of which is Action for Development through Libraries (ALP). In the IFLA website it has been described as follows:
"The mission of ALP is to further the library profession, library institutions and library and information services in the developing countries of Africa, Asia and Oceania and Latin America and the Caribbean. Within the special ALP areas the goals are to assist in continuing education and training; to facilitate the establishment of new library associations and the implementation of IFLA Guidelines on the management of library associations; to promote the function of libraries: services to the general public, information literacy and lifelong learning, and to combat functional illiteracy; to promote the use of ICT and the creation of electronic resources and to increase publishing activities and dissemination of information to the communities, with special attention to marginalized groups."
