Dozens of respondents to the recent Uses of Spore survey talked proudly of their home library , usually a modest collection of books and magazines, much used, highly coveted and obtained with great effort, and of their village information centres, with reading evenings and study days. More formal libraries also use Spore as a direct source of information and a gateway to more. At the Uyo Agro-studies and Practical Centre in Nigeria s Akwa Ibom State, librarian Lucy Rogers Eduok uses Spore as 'a veritable source of information bordering on new technology adoption, announcement of new publications and provision of research inputs.' Librarian Ferdinand Khama Chadokweenda in Gokwe, Zimbabwe, reports that 'the major use of Spore at this centre is as a periodical, circulating from person to person. It provides subject material for local extension officers and agriculture teachers in local secondary schools.'
