Guidelines for Government Libraries: a Chinese Version

We are glad to inform that a new translation of the Guidelines for Libraries of Government Departments is already online. Thanks to the collaboration of CHEN Ning, from the National Library of China, the Chinese version of the Guidelines can be found in our publications webpage.

The guidelines are meant for managers and line staff of government libraries. It takes the shape of a working guide, where examples, models of behaviours, services and best practices are listed and can be followed when they suit the situation.

We are especially happy this time because with this new translation, every IFLA official language has been covered. We are proud to have shared the Guidelines with a growing community of librarians around the globe.
