Joburg Libraries represented by Librarians Lindani Sikhakhane and Lindo Dlamini were selected as winners in the category of Innovation in Operations for the idea they submitted of an App that will assist in managing the sharing and use of ICT resources among libraries.
The app is aimed at helping libraries track the available ICT tools like laptops, tablets, and other items in various branches and be able to share these for different programmes. It assists in sharing resources in cases where they are not enough.
