The Network of Citizen Access Points (CAPs) was launched in June 2009 by Ukrainian Library Association as a part of the Parliamentary Development Program II (PDP II) grant with the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); CAPs Network’s activities are coordinated by ULA together with PDP II.

 Within the project of the Ukrainian Library Association (ULA) and the Parliamentary Development Program II (PDP II) Transcarpathian Regional Universal Scientific Library named after F. Potushnyak became a part of the Network of Citizen Access Points to official information at Ukrainian libraries.

Citizen Access Point (CAP) is the information center at the library, where citizens can get the necessary information on the work of State Authorities (including electronic sources) and learn about the ways to get involved in the legislative process, as well as influence the decision-making process.

Each user of the library can study the content of a particular law or resolution, get information on state institutions, political parties, public organizations and address the vital issues directly at the library.

This became possible due to the new information technologies, free Internet access and, therefore, access to electronic resources of State Authorities, and the work of the Network of Citizen Access Points. After all, at Citizen Access Points you can get consultations from the librarians who attended special ULA trainings: “Governmental Information for the Citizens at Ukrainian Libraries”; every library regularly receives emails on various topics and periodicals from PDP II, ULA, and other institutions that are related to the work of state authorities and public access to the legislative process; library representatives attend educational seminars, conferences, presentations and exhibitions on e-government and public access to the legislative process, spreading the experience and knowledge gained at these events in their communities.


Ukrainian Library Association is an independent Ukrainian public organization that on the voluntary basis unites individuals (Ukrainian citizens, foreign citizens, and stateless individuals), who are professionally associated with librarianship, bibliographic and informational work, and individuals interested in their development, based on the unity of their interests, for the joint realization of their rights and freedoms.

 ULA mission: comprehensive promotion of the librarianship and ensuring the rights of library users to qualitative and timely library and informational-bibliographic maintenance, as well as protection of social interests and other common interests of the ULA members.
