Introducing SCECSAL Forum

From 1 - 3 December 2010, the IAALD Africa Chapter organized a training workshop on Web 2.0 and Social Media in the Agricultural Environment as a pre-SCECSAL 2010 conference event. The workshop was held at the Centre for Academic Development of the University of Botswana in Gaborone. Seventeen participants from the following SCECSAL member countries took part in the workshop: Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

To continue practicing their skills on blogging, the participants decided to setup SCECSAL Forum:

  • as tool for collaboration on reporting on the activities and events in the library and information fieldtaking place in the SCECSAL region.
  • to promote the use of Web 2.0 tools among library and information professionals in the SCECSAL region.

The Forum is open to individuals in the SCESAL region wishing to report on library and information activities taking place in their countrie. Join the Forum and become a social reporter. Contact: Justin Chisenga
