The world of publishing is changing irrevocably – but what does that mean for the thousands of libraries in sub-Saharan Africa supported by the UK book trade through Book Aid International?
Chaired by President of Book Aid International, Nigel Newton, this seminar examines the key challenges and opportunities for sub-Saharan Africa in the age of digital publishing. Will sub-Saharan Africa’s digital infrastructure continue to lag behind other regions? Will the availability and affordability of hardware remain beyond ordinary people? Will digital publishing improve access to appropriate content? Will printed books continue to be required and available to meet the need for information and entertainment in Africa?
