Beyond Access — the movement of people and organizations committed to the idea that modern public libraries help drive economic and social development — launched its new mobile-friendly website at http://beyondaccess.net/ in English and Spanish.
"Development demands access to information and technology, support to use it, and physical spaces to connect with others. At a time of tight budgets, investing in existing trusted local institutions is efficient and smart. More than 230,000 public libraries — 73% of the world’s total — are located in developing and transitioning countries." (About Beyond Access)
The new website reflects the idea behind the movement in a very clear way. With the help of essential graphics and easy to read text - What we do & Get involved - the user immediately grasps the idea, the services, resources and possibilities.
