Abstract: Libraries for the blind are essential to the learning culture of every society and because learning and information are not limited by boundaries, it is important that libraries for the blind cooperate to support each other in making information accessible and available to those unable to read print. Blind people depend on libraries to collect, organize and make the information they need accessible to them. The 4th edition of the Directory of Libraries for the Blind, undertaken with the support of libraries for the blind from around the world, assembles information about the participating libraries and facilitates both communication and cooperation. It is a first step towards the vision of a world library of alternate format materials. The fourth edition of the International Directory of Libraries for the Blind is printed from a database which was maintained by the Japanese Society for the Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities (JSRPD) on behalf of the IFLA Section of Libraries for the Blind. The Directory is arranged alphabetically by countries. Within countries, individual organizations are also arranged alphabetically. Each organization has a unique entry number. An alphabetical list of 242 organizations in 78 countries and an index of 82 different languages follow the datasheets.
