Libraries and the Sustainable Development Goals: A Storytelling Manual

This practical guide was designed to help librarians and library advocates in telling compelling stories about library activities, projects and programmes, showing their impact on communities and people’s lives. 

Through this manual, and a new online submission form just launched, we aim to facilitate the submission of stories to be published in the IFLA Library Map of the World  that demonstrate the contribution of libraries in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Libraries, Development and the United Nations 2030 Agenda

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a framework of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a total of 169 Targets spanning economic, environmental and social development. They lay out a plan for all countries to engage actively in making our world better for its people, with no-one left behind.

Development and Access to Information

Development and Access to Information (DA2I) is the first of a series of reports that will monitor the progress countries are making towards fulfilling their commitment to promote meaningful access to information as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The International Advocacy Programme (IAP)

For this reason, IFLA launched the International Advocacy Programme (IAP) in 2016, a new capacity-building programme designed to promote and support the role libraries can play in the planning and implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.

Australian libraries support the Sustainable Development Goals

ALIA, the Australian Public Library Alliance and National and State Libraries Australasia have published a report about how Australian libraries support the Sustainable Development Goals. It features case studies of outstanding library programs in every state and territory. The report has been shared with the UN, government departments and politicians, and will form the basis for ALIA's response to the Australian Government's Inquiry into the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Public libraries are highly regarded institutions and leaders in the community, with significant influence on local government. The purpose of this report is to support leaders in the Victorian library sector to leverage their relationship with local government; and policy makers to share their stories and contribute to federal reporting on the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
