Welcome to the NIDA website
The Network for Information and Digital Access (NIDA) works to promote utilisation of information through library and information services.
NIDA partners with colleagues and organisations throughout the world to assist:
- networking and sharing of good practice and relevant experience
- informed project and programme development and research
- dissemination of information, especially of local content
- assessment and evaluation of impact
Our main focus is public access to information, especially through models embracing ICT4D (Information and Communication Technologies for Development) within a holistic approach.
NIDA invited to join as a 'Friend' of the Beyond Access initiative
25.08.13 Development demands access to information and technology, support to use it, and physical spaces to connect with others. Beyond Access (www.beyondaccess.net) focuses on one goal: advancing individual and community development. NIDA has been invited to join Beyond Access within the first cohort of 'Friends' to support member teams (now working in over 30 countries worldwide) by helping to create bridges and forge partnerships, design effective projects, and advocate for the value of information in achieving development goals.
