Frontmatter; Contents; Preface; Abbreviations and Acronyms; Authors' Contact Details; HARNESSING KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT FOR AFRICA'S TRANSITION TO THE 21ST CENTURY; POLITICS OF INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE IN AFRICA: THE STRUGGLE FOR AN INFORMATION INCLUSIVE SOCIETY IN A GLOBALISED WORLD; LIBRARIES AND DEMOCRACY; MANAGEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE: A CASE FOR THE SCECSAL REGION; A DIGITAL LIBRARY IN A RURAL MALARIA RESEARCH CENTRE IN AFRICA: THE KENYAN EXPERIENCE.
Summary: Knowledge Management was the theme of the Standing Conference of Eastern, Central and Southern African Library and Information Associations (SCECSAL XVII) in 2006. This selection of conference papers provides a cross-disciplinary approach to knowledge, information and development and how the three together can mould a new and more informed society. The challenge is to make our libraries more people-centered and Afro-centric, not simply serving the interests of the elite and paying little attention to the plight of the less well off. This needs to change, with libraries becoming more inclusive.
