Net neutrality refers to the principle that all data or traffic on the Internet should be treated equally. As set out in the IFLA Statement of 2016, unjustified discrimination can lead to certain types of content being prioritised, and others placed in the slow lane.
This poses a challenge not just to the broader values of libraries - notably free and equal access to information and free expression - as well as a potentially direct threat to the ability of libraries to interact with users on the best connection possible.
This toolkit is for all librarians and aims to increase awareness about net neutrality, and so help you play an active role in advocacy on the topic.
This toolkit will help you to:
1. Understand what net neutrality is and why it is important.
2. Learn how your ISPs may be meddling with your connection,
3. Read about other organizations that are closely monitoring events and making a case for net neutrality, and
4. Take action
