The Options Available in the Absence of Full Technological Capabilities: the Full Potentials for the Law of the Sea Documentation Centre in the Nairobi University Library,Kenya
ABSTRACT: Electronic information management relies heavily on the technological capability of a nation. This must be backed by good national and international communication and telecommunication networks. In the absence of these, it becomes difficult, even with top of the range computer equipment to effectively utilize and manage information, especially in the area of information dissemination. Since its inception, The Law of the Sea Documentation Center in Nairobi has always provided good computer equipment for information management. Our national communication and telecommunication network has been the biggest drawback when it comes to information dissemination. Nevertheless, the documentation center has exploited all avenues available to ensure that the collection is utilized. Heavy utilization of the collection has been on the increase. The options available to information workers in a country with poor communication and telecommunication infrastructure is the thrust of this paper.
