RECOMMENDATION
Special libraries are created with the mandate to support the mission of their organization. No special library can have and provide all the needed information of its constituents. Thus, it is necessary to share knowledge generated and acquired with other organizations of common interests. This will promote not only your experts and their outputs but as well as the institution and the country as a whole.

“Institute an organization system that will bring together and vitalize the resources, personnel and linkages”
