Making Sense of the Information Wilderness: Library and Information Services for the Improvement of Human Rights Work

Image of a computer screenThe Human Rights Centre at the University of Sarajevo used their resources efficiently to more effectively advance human rights work.  They built a strong information system and created a central role for an information specialist or librarian. The utilization of this information system and specialist allowed other staff to better, and more productively, focus on their core programmatic missions.
