The goal of the three-day training session is to translate theoretical ideas about digital libraries for African institutions into reality by focusing on implementation and management.

The training will cover the planning process, guidelines and policies involved in operationalizing a digital repository. It will also provide a unique opportunity for individual institutions to realize the dream of implementing a digital repository by offering a hosting platform and the technical skills to set up the repository on the spot. The training will impart practical skills on setting up a digital repository using open source tools such as Greenstone and DSpace.
