Subject: Enabling academic excellence in African universities

Dear Colleagues,

The Association of Commonwealth Universities and INASP are planning to publish a joint publication for African Vice Chancellors, the purpose of which will be to demonstrate the value and impact of academic libraries to university leadership. Please find attached our Call for Abstracts. I hope you will consider the possibility of writing a brief article for this publication and also circulate this Call to others who you may feel appropriate.

INASP and the ACU both believe it is important at this time to be able to demonstrate to institutional managers and administrators the value of the work libraries are doing, and we feel that this publication will contribute to provide evidence of a real and practical nature.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Friday 15 June. We will inform successful applicants very shortly afterwards, and the full and final articles will need to be produced by 31 August.

I apologise for any cross-postings you may receive.
