Sylvia Owiny, Social Sciences Librarian, University Libraries

"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 purpose of the survey was to document the state of libraries in the Lango Sub-region and explore how libraries are viewed at different levels by different populations. 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?
