Several committees shape and steer the key policy issues of IPA. The permanent committees are the Copyright Committee, Freedom to Publish Committee, and the Membership Committee, which work according to guidelines adopted by the General Assembly. In addition, there are working committees for Literacy and Book Industry Policy.
In addition, IPA and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) jointly set up a Steering Group, which used to meet three times a year in order to deal with the publishers-librarians issues. For more, click here.
