Angolan Executive Intends to Launch Proximity Digital Libraries

Luanda — The secretary of State for Information Technologies, Pedro Teta, said last Monday in Luanda that in February 2014 his sector will launch the first proximity digital library.

According to Pedro Teta, who was making an assessment of the work so far done by the National Digital Library Network in 2013, eighteen proximity digital libraries should be concluded by the end of 2014, with a view to covering the whole of the national territory.

He stressed that the idea is to have, at least, one digital library in each province and one proximity digital library to approach young people.

Pedro Teta also announced that the digital library of the central Huambo province is scheduled for the beginning of February 2014, while that one of Saurimo (eastern Lunda Sul Province) is in its conclusion stage. He went on to say that the same sort of infrastructure is being built in the provinces of Uíge, Malanje, Luanda (the second one), Kuito (Bié), Cabinda and Ondjiva (Cunene).

The Angolan Digital Library Network expects to build, until the year 2017, a total of 25 digital libraries.
