Emerging scholar Andiswa Mfengu, a recent addition to our academic staff, represented our School at the 3rd AfLIA ( African Library & Information Associations & Institutions) Conference and African Summit in Nairobi, Kenya, in May.

We are very pleased that Andiswa was chosen as the new Vice-Chair of the AfLIA Library and Information Education/Training Institutions (LIT) Section. Her contribution to the section will be mutually beneficial to AfLIA and to UCT DKIS, enhancing our footprint in LIS Education in Africa while ensuring that we remain up to date with the latest developments in LIS education on the continent.
