Broadly, access to the right information at the right time empowers people to better control their lives. The key engines for any social, economic and cultural development in today's world are knowledge and creativity.Since the dawn of humanity, the production and use of new knowledge, in every scope of human activity, have led to the evolution of societies and prosperity of people. Knowledge is viewed as the most precious "wealth" that human beings hold over other creatures. In development, knowledge is seen as a global public good that calls for active public support. While the invention of the printing press in 1455 represented an important milestone in the development of knowledge diffusion, fast growth in technology during the last century has enabled the larger public to access information freely.Access to information is very crucial in today's world. Education is in fact the cornerstone for building real knowledge societies, which are the source of human and sustainable development.With globalization and fast growing ICT, acquiring knowledge through lifelong learning has become increasingly important worldwide.In short, individuals must have the right knowledge through quality education for them to succeed, while societies must have a "well-educated" population for them to prosper.
