Welcome message from the ARCIS Director
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Africa Regional Centre for Information Science (ARCIS). You will be able to learn about ARCIS, including its objectives, programmes, facilities and resources, students, staff and alumni, as well as its history.
Our aim is to be a Centre of Excellence in information science and technology, and a major facilitator of information technology training, research, collaboration and advisory services in Africa. As a centre serving developing countries in the West African sub-region, we need and cherish the support of international agencies and collaboration with information science and technology institutions within and outside the West African sub-region to enable us achieve our goals. We therefore solicit your goodwill, technical and financial assistance, as well as collaborative research and training partnerships, and staff and student exchange programmes.
This website aims to provide a platform through which ARCIS students, staff, alumni, collaborators, supporters and friends can obtain and exchange information and ideas on how to build, manage and leverage information, knowledge and information technology resources and systems for the development of African peoples, societies and countries.
You are most welcome!
