                In conclusion
• Society should ensure that no one is denied
  access to the information they need
• As a profession it is our responsibility to achieve
  this goal
• Public and academic libraries both have a
  responsibility to their local community and they
  should work together to provide access
• There should be a national information policy to
  ensure that the information needs of all
  members of society are met
