The workshops conducted in five countries of the SADCC region, described in this report, are the third in a series of workshops that the Library and Documentation Services Division at ICRISAT has conducted in Africa. The first set of workshops were held in four countries of West Africa in 1985 as part of the erstswhile project called Sorghum and Millets Information Center (SMIC). Response to these workshop indicated that endd-users (scientists, technicians, extensionists) of agricultural information in these countries did not oriented to using information as a resource in planning, research and development, and problem solving. The SMIC project was succeeded by a new project called the Semi-Arid Tropical Crops Information Service (SATCRIS) in 1986, and it was decided that an important objective of SATCRIS should be to promote its services in Africa through user-oriented workshops. Two sets of workshops were planned in the SATCRIS project. The first of these was held in three countries of Eastern Africa in 1988. The present report discusses the work done in the workshops conducted in five Southern African Dvelopment Cooridination Council (SADCC) countries. Two professional staff members of the Library and Documentation Services Division traveled to the five countries. The two-member team was joined at Zambia by the Regional Training Officer of the ICRISAT/SADCC program at Zimbabwe,and he traveled with the team from SATCRIS in India through Zambia,Zimbabwe, and Botswana
