The management of grey literature as a component of a library and information science curriculum

L. Olatokunbo Aina
A citation analysis of a sample of publications appearing in journals published in Africa in 1995 was carried out. The citation covered major disciplines in sciences, humanities, education, social sciences and librarianship. The study reveals that grey literature (GL) is used by researchers across the disciplines. Given the importance of GL to researchers in Africa, as well as the pervasive role internet can play in providing access to GL, a case is made for teaching...

Promoting the exploitation of grey literature in Africa

L. Olatokunbo Aina
A major problem with the use of grey literature in Africa is its lack of publicity and accessibility. Suggests various ways of advertising GL, including the provision of the international Standard Grey Literature Number (ISGLN) to all types of grey literature produced within each country in Africa. The national library within each country would be designated as the ISGLN issuing agency. Recommends that the network of the Pan African Development Information System (PADISNET) should include...

Electronic networking and grey literature: the African context

Kgomotso H. Moahi
Whilst the rest of the world is on the threshold of being an integral part of "Cyberspace" or on the net, most African countries are still trying to grapple with the more basic problem of implementing computer systems. Of course, not all of these countries are the same, with some, like South Africa, being more advanced. Africa also has a number of problems when it comes to the collection, processing and dissemination of grey literature....

The problems of pricing and selling socio-economic grey literature in Africa: the case of the National Institute of Development Research and Documentation (NIR), University of Botswana

Kate Kwafo-Akoto
In Africa, socio-economic grey literature (GL) constitutes a substantialproportion of literature produced especially in the universities through their research activities. The paper analyses some of the key problems encountered in pricing and selling GL produced by universities in Africa such as their specialised subject content which fail to appeal to the general public. Discusses the role being played by the National Institute of Development Research and Documentation in building the research capacity of Botswana; conducting...

Grey literature in academic research in Developing Countries : Problems and Prospects

J.C. Kufa
Apart from the problem of the nature and definition of GL which will be discussed, the paper shall examine the viability of grey literature as an important research resource in the context of the problem issues associated with this type of material namely acquisition, accessibility and bibliographic control of these materials in developing countries. The writer shall consult available literature on GL as well as draw upon his practical experiences in running Special Collections libraries...

Grey literature and the DEVSIS-Botswana Project: The Case of the national institute of development research and documentation

Kate Kwafo-Akoto & Kgomotso H. Moahi
The NIR Documentation Centre serves the research staff at NIR and other members of the public. It collects, organises and disseminates grey or unpublished literature. In 1984 a project was formulated between the Documentation Centre and the International Development Research Centre, Canada and the Pan African Documentation and Information System (PADIS). The Project sought to assist the NIR to effectively collect and organise its holdings using PADIS methodologies. It would also contribute to the bibliographic...

New isoflavan from Erythrina livingstoniana

Nayang A. Kgakatsi, Runner R. T. Majinda, Ishmael B. Masesane, Mutshinyalo S. Nwamadi, Taye B. Demissie, Japheth O. Ombito & Irene Gobe
Chemical investigation of the root wood of Erythrina livingstoniana led to the isolation of one previously undescribed isoflavan (3S,3″R)-7-hydroxy-2′-methoxy-[3″-hydroxy-2″,2″-dimethylpyrano (3′,4′)] isoflavan 1, together with eleven known compounds 2-12. The structure of compound 1 was elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic and spectrometric analyses (1 D and 2 D-NMR and APCI-HRMS), with absolute configurations established by comparison of experimental and DFT calculated ECD data. The assignment of the absolute configurations of C-3 and C-3″ of...
