On the occasion of World Intellectual Property
Day<http://www.wipo.int/ip-outreach/en/ipday/2013>with the theme
"Creativity: the next generation", EIFL is pleased to
publish the fourth in a series of case studies with the results of
advocacy campaigns in support of copyright law reform in EIFL partner
countries <http://www.eifl.net/where-we-work>.

Every day, libraries in all parts of the world help millions of people meet
their work, study, research and leisure needs. Libraries support education
and research for the next generation by providing access to information
resources essential for teaching and learning. Libraries encourage
creativity and innovation by enabling access to knowledge, ideas and works
of imagination for everyone. Librarians advocate for a legal framework that
supports technological change and that holds dear the purpose of copyright
- to encourage creativity and learning – for the next generation of
pioneers who will change our world.

Significant resources are being invested in improving library services in
Uzbekistan, but legal and knowledge barriers stand in the way of developing
an effective information society. In the case study, read how librarians in
Uzbekistan are campaigning for a progressive copyright law in support of
library development.<http://www.eifl.net/helping-library-development-uzbekistan>
