Description:

NACA, an intergovernmental organization created in the early 1980s as an FAO project, promotes rural development in 15 Asia-Pacific countries through sustainable aquaculture. The current member governments include Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Korea (DPR), Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Other participating (non-member) governments include Indonesia, Iran, Rep. of Korea, Lao PDR and Singapore. The members form a Governing Council that directs policy and activities. FAO is a non-voting member of the council. NACA conducts development assistance projects throughout the region in various partnerships. NACA supports institutional strengthening, technical exchange and the development of policies for sustainable aquaculture and aquatic resource management. (Summarized from theNACA web site).

One of NACA’s core activities is the development of communication and information networks amongst the member countries. Its Information Center, staffed by one manager, and two assistants, is charged with managing NACA’s information as well as producing the serial publications and providing technical assistance in communications to the members.

Digitization efforts:

NACA’s Information and Communication Program is committed to information in a digital format as the best means of sharing it widely and quickly. Consequently, NACA produces its publications almost exclusively in digital form, reformats members’ information, collects other appropriate digital content and supports communities of users through its web site. XOOPS, an Open Source web content management software, is used for the NACA web site, Pagemaker for the serial publications and pdf formats for other digital content.

Description:

Bunda College of Agriculture, founded in 1967, has graduated over 3000 students with diplomas, 1700 with BSc, 700 with MSc and 1 PhD. It focuses on natural resources, agriculture and basic studies including research, teaching and outreach. The Library is housed in a pleasant, spacious facility with adequate wiring for connectivity. The library is open seven days a week when classes are in session. There are three librarians, six library assistants, two messengers and three guards. Funding for staff positions is part of the monthly government subvention administered by the College Management. The collection is funded with a variety of grants. Recent ones include $30,000 from NORAD over two years and another from ICEIDA. The collection has approximately 40,000 books and 10,000 bound periodicals. There is a special Malawiana collection containing books about Malawi or written by Malawians.

Digitization efforts:

While eager to move forward with digitization of Malawi aquaculture information, the Bunda College Library is cautious. The benefits of providing digital access include potential savings in printing and postage costs as well greater exposure to local content. Staff training and workflow demands would be possible costs as well as replacing equipment over time. The University of Malawi Libraries needs to develop a direction for digital libraries in the country. They know that success will be based on working together and supporting each others efforts. Sharing expertise and solutions to challenges will make the project possible.

Description:

Created in 1952, IMROP focuses on building knowledge about the fishing and ocean resources of Mauritania. Programmes include stock assessment, evaluating constraints on artisanal fisheries, marine mammal studies, variability and durability of Mauritanian upwelling, and seafood inspection among others. The library has a strong collection of 8500 volumes and 92 serial subscriptions. It is staffed by one librarian and three assistants. CDSISIS has been used for more than 12 years for collection management. As an ODINAFRICA participant, the library is migrating systems to INMAGIC although CDS/ISIS may still be used for certain operations. The library is also responsible for editing and distributing the IMROP Bulletins and other institutional publications.

Digitization efforts:

IMROP produces regular reports and occasional monographs. Additionally, the Library collects papers and theses as produced. Digitization of all of these is a long-term project that is currently in the planning stage. The Library has great interest in making the institution’s reports more accessible to a broader audience. As a member of the ODINAFRICA network, the IMROP Library may be a pilot partner in a digital repository for that network.
