Mongolian Library Consortium

The Mongolian Library Consortium is a professional organization that provides support for Mongolian libraries and librarians. Working with public, academic, and school libraries, the consortium helps to improve access to information across Mongolia. One of its key activities includes training librarians on how to expand services to meet the needs of their communities. The consortium promotes the broader use of technologies within libraries and works to develop creative technology based programs. It also advocates for the use of open access resources so important information can be further disseminated into communities.
