Resource Sharing of Libraries in Developing Countries: The Case for Library Networking.
Kigongo-Bukenya, I. M. N.
Library networking is defined, and several topics are examined as they relate to developing nations--the need for library networking, the necessity of a survey of existing services, the network structure, the legal framework, financing, the need for manpower, and technological needs. Library networking is defined as the process of carefully planning and setting up a connected national system of libraries, documentation and archives services, and the predetermination of the implementation process to achieve the set goals of the system.
