A National Information System

Librarians and other interested individuals have long recognised the need for a National Information System in any country, particularly in developing countries where there are limited financial resources and the “need-to-know” is greatest. In this paper I have tried to show how library personnel, under very trying conditions, have tried and are still trying to implement a National Information System in present day Guyana. There are some omissions as there are information sources, still to be tapped and those which are tapped have their own problems of satisfying their own community before serving the wider community.
