Why Parliament libraries are target in the current global information trends?
- They are specialized units initially established to specifically deal with policy makers.
- Stakeholders – Increasing competition by researchers, civil society, and various social groups and/or other organizations in public and private sector to have their interests heard and channeled into policy and legislation.
- The vast amount of information targeting Parliaments require synthesizing, storage for immediate and future retrieval and reference.
