  1. The library as information producer: the case of the Ministry of Health Library and Documentation Centre in Malawi.

    Article - En anglais

    Libraries are often known solely as collectors of information.

    As a non-productive branch of an organisation, libraries can have a hard time justifying the increasingly higher costs of information materials and making that information available to users.

    This paper describes a USAID funded project at the Ministry of Health Library and Documentation Centre, Malawi, which reverses the stereotypical role of library as information collector to library as producer of information by using desk-top publishing and CD-ROM technology that has become more readily available in recent years.
