CDROM technology, though inherently part and parcel of computer technology, is considered separately in regard to library/information automation in African libraries. Library automation is a much more complex and expensive affair while the use of CDROM is a fairly straightforward computer application to a library environment, hence its popularity in many types of African libraries. CDROM can be regarded as the fastest growing information technology (IT) in African libraries today, but what is its future there?

Outlines the development of international standards for bibliographic control. Considers the relevance and use of these standards in Africa and concludes that more appropriate approaches to cataloguing should be sought for African purposes rather than a slavish adherence to standards developed elsewhere.

The management of building development and construction processes in various environments is not similar because of the magnitude, functions, location, materials used, cost and of course use of the building. Similarly, building processes depend on the magnitude of financial involvement, the management of the building process, architecture, construction processes and environmental factors associated with location, politics, economics and culture. Provides a background to and outlines the problems of a building process in which the two authors have participated. Addresses the roles of management/organization/client, the building management committee and donor agency in the management of the building process and evaluates the overall achievement of the construction objectives. Observes that the client should be involved in the construction process at all stages and levels to monitor progress and that any consultancy appointment should involve experts familiar with the construction environment and should include a local consultant. It is equally important to equip the project manager with the necessary knowledge and resources to facilitate a resourceful contribution to the project. Suggests that the information in this paper may interest those involved with similar projects elsewhere.
