This compilation is no mere collection of papers, but a well-edited collage of experiences in the transfer of library technical information, usually between developed and developing countries. Every continent is represented by a wealth of material; and the experiences discussed reflect both the variety of tasks handled by libraries and information centers and the diversity of the cultural milieux in which they operate. Original documents, case studies, analyses from third party observers-this rich collection provides a fascinating look at world development on the information frontier.
