Friends of Beyond Access

In addition to our program team, organizing committee, and member teams, Beyond Access gathers international development practitioners who believe that libraries can drive social and economic development.

Through their work, these experts understand that many development efforts deal with information issues — from training and capacity building to awareness raising and behavior-change communication campaigns.

Friends of Beyond Access benefit from introductions to local partners in 30+ countries, help integrating libraries into their strategies and projects, and opportunities to represent their organization. In turn, they support member teams, helping them forge partnerships and design effective projects. Learn more about Friends of Beyond Access »
