About the committee:

The BC Library Association Information Policy Committee is a standing committee of BCLA established to advance the interests of citizens and library users in gaining and maintaining affordable and equitable access to information, and ensuring that "the public interest is safeguarded in any government decisions related to information policy".

What we do:

  • monitor developments in information access and advise BCLA Executive on appropriate policies and actions
  • prepare discussion and position papers for the Association
  • encourage ongoing education of BCLA members on information policy through conferences, talks, newsletter articles, brochures and electronic media
  • develop public education and lobby campaigns
  • establish liaisons and coalitions with other organizations, especially library associations, to further the position of BCLA in ensuring the "public good" is paramount in information policy development.
