Metafro-Infosys reviewed by ATOL and Euforic

In May and June 2007, Euforic and ATOL carried out a review of the Metafro-Infosys project, hosted by the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) in Brussels.

Since 1998, the project was funded by the Belgian government - as an information source and platform to find and disseminate Belgian expertise, data and information on Central Africa.

Beyond a review of Metafro activities, the review team was asked to take a forward-looking and institutional approach, signposting issues to be examined by the RMCA.

It was a challenging exercise - looking at research collections, library catalogues, and digital strategies for a development research museum.
