Major objectives of ACURIL are: a. to facilitate development and use of libraries, archives, and information services, and the identification, collection and preservation of information resources in support of the whole range of intellectual and educational endeavors throughout the Caribbean area; b. to strengthen the archival, library and information professions; c. to unite information workers in them, and to promote cooperative activities in pursuit of these objectives.
