2003-03-29Central Asia. Libraries, archives, information services and networks are essential components of any strategy aiming at improving information access, both for the public at large and for specialized clienteles. UNESCO has contributed to the reinforcement of these types of services since its creation. The development of information technologies, more particularly the Internet, has created a completely new environment in which the role of traditional information services must be deeply revised. The potential of networking, cooperation and digitization modify substantially the functions of acquiring, storing and disseminating information and knowledge. In this respect, special attention should be paid to least developed countries so that they do not stay behind technological advances.
During past 10 years a number of leading universities in the Central Asia show sustainable interest in the establishment and development of the distance learning networks, as well as the introduction of Information and Communication technologies (ICT) into the educational process. Based on existing ITTE infrastructure of the national focal points in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan UNESCO Cluster Office Almaty concluded agreement with Moscow ITTE Office, with aim to expand the network.
