Developing and Strengthening Library Collections with Culturally Relevant African Materials Program Moscone Convention Center

As libraries and information networks grow across Africa, and more Africans make their home in North America, librarians on both continents are challenged to respond to local needs and provide culturally relevant materials to their patrons. Librarians and information professionals in many African countries, sometimes partnering with American colleagues, are finding innovative ways to ensure that libraries serve ALL the people in their target populations. Presenters will discuss projects, services, research studies, culturally relevant materials including local languages, preservation and dissemination of indigenous knowledge, and locally relevant digital projects. Come, to hear creative ideas and meet potential partners.
