‘Book Donation Programmes for Africa’: ARD Opens Debate

No. 127 of SCOLMA’s journal African Research and Documentation has been published and contains a major article by Hans Zell and Raphaël Thierry on book donation programmes in anglophone and francophone Africa. The authors examine current book donation practices, profiling leading book donation organisations in the UK, the Netherlands, the USA and South Africa, and ask whether they adhere to collection development guidelines and meet the needs of recipients, and what their impact is on local publishers and book traders. It is hoped that the article will open debate and responses and feedback are invited.
