Explores how info. is being dissem. in the region where the impact of HIV/AIDS has been the greatest, & the resources of the countries impacted have been the smallest -- Sub-Saharan Africa. The developing countries of this region have numerous challenges to overcome in all aspects of their society, but in the realm of public info. dissemination, they must deal with high rates of illiteracy, low levels of info. tech. infrastructure, multiple lang., & cultural attitudes & practices that were better suited for centuries past, not for the 21st century. This study examined the role of libraries -- & library-like institutions -- as change-agents. What are they accomplishing now & what else could they do? How does the African context influence the role of libraries?
