Librarians without Borders®
MLA's E-library Training Initiative is funded in part by
Librarians without Borders® (download PDF brochure) was established in November 2005 to provide training in the field of information retrieval and library information assistance to people anywhere in the world, namely training in the use of computers used for library research and general training on how to effectively conduct research using a library. The initiative also helps provide medical information for healthcare personnel responding to epidemics and natural and man-made disasters anywhere in the world.
MLA works with the association's International Cooperation Section (ICS) on the Librarians without Borders® initiative. ICS provides opportunities for participation in international cooperation projects, promotes awareness of international issues, provides a mechanism for addressing and responding to the needs of international members, and fosters communication in the international library area.
