Information Advocacy Day

Ministerial libraries conducted an information advocacy day yesterday at the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. This event is conducted on a quarterly basis at different ministries. We believe that as special librarians, we have a very crucial role to play in providing technical and scientific information to decision makers, researchers, business people, students, technicians and other professionals. The aim of this event is simply to create awareness to staff members in our hosting ministries on the available library collection we house in our libraries and services offered. The Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism graced the opening of the event. Honourable Minister Shifeta also took time to meet all the ministerial libraians who were present. This move has been appreciated both by MET Management and staff members and the Director of Finance pledged to support us in every way possible. Yes we can do this.

ICT Use in Libraries

Students using free internet

It is important to acknowledge that the emergence of ICT has immensely transformed the libraries’ traditional methods of disseminating information. In our quest to remain relevant we have come to realize that ICT access through libraries and digitization are not optional, but an obligation.

ICT enables us to facilitate access to information to our users while digitization gives us the chance to preserve fragile documents and make them accessible in digital format to the people of Namibia. Digitization helps us to preserve the nation’s valuable historical documents.
