Niall McNulty has recently returned from a trip to Kenya, where he presented at the IST-Africa Conference on the Ulwazi Programme, a digital library initiative he has managed for the past five years. The project uses the public library infrastructure, the local community and social web technologies to collect and disseminate indigenous knowledge and local histories. His paper is available on Academia.edu.
Niall shared the stage with colleagues from the University of Reading, who manage the Catalogue of Life, the most authoritative global species index available. Cool project!
