Among the problems that Third World countries face is the need to integrate education--especially programs that promote basic literacy--into the development process. Part of the challenge is to create programs in library and information studies that are not wholly derived from First World institutions and ideologies but spring from the needs of the very different societies they are intended to serve. In this book, Horowitz offers the first detailed assessment of the role of librarianship in a nation struggling to overcome underdevelopment. Through her systematic rethinking of the conceptual basis of library and information studies, she provides a practical synthesis that reconciles opposing views and establishes the validity of Third World perspectives in their own right.
