Abstract

Abstract:

This article focuses on Cuba's international library work by examining the activity of Marta Terry González, a library leader in several top Cuban institutions. As an Afro-Cuban woman, she embodied the rise of the Global South, entering the international arena in 1968 and continuing to be active for forty years. By considering the events she participated in through the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) from start to conclusion, this article explains how Cuban library work democratized the field and expanded and improved library services for more people.
