Changing Roles of NGOs in the Creation, Storage, and Dissemination of Information in Developing CountriesNon-governmental organizations (NGOs) are growing exponentially. In
1993, the Yearbook of International Organizations listed 16,000
internationally recognized NGOs. By 2004, this number was 63,000. With
this increase comes a staggering growth in the activities and
intellectual output of NGOs working on a local and international level.
As the mission of both libraries and NGOs increasingly intersect, these
organizations must collaborate to provide essential services that
revolve around the creation, dissemination, and storage of information.
This volume's eight essays focus on collaborative work between NGOs and
libraries in the study and resolution of global issues ranging from AIDS
to food security, and social transformation.
