 The Libraries for Sustainable Development (LSD) website was created to feature and bring together information to act on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and sustainable development, in general. The LSD website hosts the Information Action Briefs (IABs), published by the Mortenson Center, and is a portal to learn about actions being taken by library and information organizations and resources for libraries worldwide to advance the UN SDGs. We have less thana decade to deliver the Goals!  

The IAB is a resource guide to implement transformational actions using information to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It addresses: What is our goal? Why should we care? How is this related to information? What can I (or the profession) do?, and includes an infographic to offer a visual representation of that SDG. The IAB is designed to inspire and mobilize the library and information community to act locally or globally, personally or collectively,

 At the webinar, you will be introduced to the LSD website and IABs, hear from the team and authors who created the IABs, and be invited to a future workshop to author an IAB.
