IFLA has chosen five Key Initiatives for its Strategic Plan 2010 – 2015.
The two first are broad in scope.
The Digital Content Programme responds to the global transition from print to digital media. IFLA specifies four topics:
- digital legal deposit – with a focus on legislative certainty for deposit and library user access
- digital lending – with a focus on library user access to e-resources, and inter-organisation/cross-border uses compatible with fair practice
- mass digitisation – with a focus on IFLA facilitating information exchange for the library sector
- digital preservation – with a focus on legal mechanisms for harvesting and preserving born digital information and local content hosted on websites and in social media
