A Library Landscape Assessment of Bangladesh is the most in-depth and comprehensive study of Library and Information Services (LIS) ever undertaken in Bangladesh.
The study was commissioned by the British Council, in collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh, BRAC and the Bengal Foundation. The Institute of Informatics and Development were contracted to carry out the research and analysis tasks of the study.
The study aims to assess the current provision of LIS in urban, semi-urban and rural areas, and will determine what can be done to radically improve the situation. This research and analysis is helping to create a comprehensive understanding of the current LIS provision in Bangladesh, mapped against needs, and identifies opportunities and challenges for implementing major changes.
