Uganda, The Uganda Society Library
The Uganda Society Library, housed in the Uganda Museum in Kampala, preserved the collection by restoring damaged volumes, making the storage facilities safer and digitising the documents.
Furthermore the applicant intends to create better viewing facilities for visitors so that the collection can be viewed and handled safely. The collection comprises approximately 6000 volumes, a collection of maps, periodicals and photographs, all pertaining to African history, culture, sociology, travel and science. Due to neglect, lack of funds, difficult environmental conditions and other hazards (mould and insects) the collection held in the library is in a precarious condition.
