Reviews of library and information science are common in the developed world, but they fail to provide regular and up-to-date coverage of developing countries. Here are contributions from Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zambia and Tanzania, plus an article on cooperation between French speaking African countries. Additionally there are general articles including a review of university library buildings, of library education and of African librarianship periodicals. Topics covered by country include the computerization of library systems in Kenya and in Nigeria, the government funding of university libraries in Nigeria, the public library service in Sierra Leone, literacy programmes in Uganda, services to the disadvantaged in Zambia, and research and information services for politicians in Tanzania.
