This training manual has been prepared following workshops held in Africa on 'Proactive librarianship: Marketing and public relations' for librarians and information workers, professional and paraprofessional, working in any type of library. The manual has been created to provide a practical guide for organisers and presenters of workshops in running successful training events in their own region.
