IFLA's Core Programme for the Universal Availability of Publications (UAP) aims to overcome the barriers to improved access to publications, through workshops, research, an active publications programme, and the development of tools and guidelines. The programme has recently held UAP seminars in Bangkok and in Buenos Aires, which have provided an opportunity for library staff in South East Asia and in Latin America respectively to discuss the state of library development in the region, and to identify ways in which access to published materials can be improved.

As well as looking at document delivery systems and resource-sharing opportunities, the seminars also examined the state of publishing and library provision in all of the countries represented. The Bangkok seminar was the second to be held in that region, and was organised as a follow-up to the first, held in 1995, giving participants the chance to study what, if any, progress had been made since the first seminar. The papers from both seminars will be published in due course and will be available from the UAP office.
