The African Library and Information Associations and Institutions (AfLIA) has been leading African librarians and information professionals to ask questions and explore how to fully open the knowledge stored in information resources in African libraries, archives and museums so that they will be more visible and easier to locate. This is critical as opening up knowledge helps to create more knowledge and pathways for solutions that lead to sustainable development.
