The revised guidelines concentrate on the basic tasks needed to set up and operate a small documentation centre at the local level. It takes account of the developments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) which have revolutionised information provision during the past ten years. The revised guidelines continue to cover manual systems, but also include more detailed guidance on computer applications and access to the Internet. These guidelines are addressed to: managers of local water supply and sanitation units who have decided to set up or improve a local documentation centre; professional or technical staff members acting as the supervisor of such a centre; and clerical or secretarial staff members responsible for the operation of such a centre.
