Access to information and knowledge

Rede de Mediatecas de Angola initiated the Angola Network of Media Libraries (ReMA) programme, which seeks to address the information and educational problems of Angolan society. The programme represents an evolution from traditional libraries to libraries embodying information technologies and current digital culture. It envisages the implementation of 25 fixed and 18 mobile Media Libraries countrywide by 2017, and is of key significance since it promotes full citizen participation in the information and knowledge society, strengthening of the educational system and the economic and social development of Angola through the enhanced use of technology.
