BTB #130: Global Information Partners

Stephen KizzaDennie HeyeSharing information brings people together – and in this “Beyond the Book” episode, two email correspondents hear each other’s voices for the first time: Dennie Heye of Shell in the Netherlands, and Stephen Kizza, an Assistant Librarian for the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Resource Center in Kampala, Uganda.

SLA LogoStarting with two shelves and two computers, they and others are working together to supply that remote library with online resources, and to raise funds to bring Kizza to New Orleans for the 2010 SLA conference. “It will be a dream-come-true for Stephen to go to the conference, visit some international libraries and meet with international colleagues,” Heye tells Chris Kenneally.
