AAAS is very grateful to the International Digital Electronic Access
Library (IDEAL) staff, and particularly to Andy Crowther, for making the
entire IDEAL catalog available to us in full text for the purposes of
the feasibility study. We are also profoundly indebted to Alan Barrett
of Internet Africa in Capetown, South Africa, for lending us his systems
administrator Ian Freislich as technical consultant for the two-week trip,
and to Mr. Freislich for making himself available and for working so diligently.
We also wish to thank our hosts at each of the African universities, who
made their Internet resources available to us so generously and treated
us with such warm hospitality: John Munsaka and Carol Hawthorne at University
of Zambia, James Mugasha and Elly Gamukama at Makerere University, Mumuni
Dakubu at University of Ghana, and Boubakar Barry and Alex Corenthin at
University of Cheikh Anta Diop. Finally, we are extremely grateful to
John Rose and Howard Moore at UNESCO for making the study possible in
the first place.
