Objectives

  • To develop capacity in higher education in subject areas relevant to ISOOKO (e.g. digital asset management, digital curation, social computing, digital archives) in East Africa, initially at Makerere University – specifically the East African School of Information and Library Sciences – but with the aim of extending it to other universities in the region, e.g. the University of Rwanda.
  • To develop and carry out training programmes in these areas that are adapted to the local contexts.
  • To develop reference teaching materials at Master’s level that can be integrated into existing programmes within the region.

Work package lead: Makerere University
