Librarians Without Borders

Set up in 2005 Librarians Without Borders is an organisation that seeks to challenge "the vast information resource inequity existing between different regions of the world. Our vision is to build sustainable libraries and support their custodians and advocates -- librarians." Their website provides background information about the work that they are doing, and about their first international project, the Biblioteca Tutangi, in Angola -a desperately needed nursing and medical Portuguese language library that will support the learning needs of university and college students in Huambo.
