This is a very interesting topic. In most African countries this is true. For instance, many people in most of the african countries are regarded as being illiterate. They can neither read, write nor use a computer. So how does an illiterate person follow instructions on the use of the many databases found in Libraries? For any person to operate a computer he has to be computer literate, but nay even most of the African University students first come face to face with a computer in a University. The fact that most libraries have gone high-tech in the provision of their services suggests that a lot more people are left out in accessing such information. What worsens the situation is that , Libraries are already regarded as being Elitist in nature.
