"Survey of Libraries in Lango Sub-region, Uganda: A Sabbatical Report"
“A true African library would be one into which Africans and others could walk in order to experience the realities of the African world view…” (Cram 15)

The results of the survey revealed disconnect between libraries and communities in the sub-region. Are western model of libraries meeting the information and knowledge needs of these communities?
