Our video documentaries (left), books (right) and other library resources like posters, leaflets, audio tapes, educational DVDs, computer and online resources are examples of documentation & information management at our Centre

At CRIDOC, the "documentation" concept does not only mean simply gathering of information on child and youth rights related issues, but rather it largely focuses on various channels and means of documenting the resources in accessible manner.

Qualified staff and volunteers - a Librarian, a Computer Database Manager, a Webmaster - all have been engaged to systematically manage all available information resources gathered by a team of dedicated researchers, most of whom comprise volunteer college students (interns).

Thus documentation is largely done through:
bullet Publications (Reports, papers, etc)
bullet Computer databases (using programmes like Access, Excel, Oracle, etc)
bullet On-line (website) databases (using MySQL, PHP language)
bullet Library cataloguing of books, journals, etc
bullet Other emerging new technologies (ICT models) available

The Resource Centre (Library)

Under the Documentation & Information Management Programme, CRIDOC CRIDOC has received donations of books and other materials from the Bishop Mackenzie International High School; the UK-based Child Rights Information Network (CRIN), the National AIDS Commission (NAC), among many others.

As an institutional member of the National Library Service (NLS), it has also received a considerable amount of educational resources specifically for children.

In order to achieve some of its core goals, which is to document and create access to information on issues pertaining to children/youth and related issues, CRIDOC has put in place a resource centre/library that provides such information to various stakeholders.

In particular, the resource centre is also being accessed by pupils/students from various schools within Lilongwe who are registered with the centre through their child rights clubs.
