How to use the database

The SRI-Africa sponsors the SRI for Africa research network which also provides access to a group library on Zotero. The research collection, which contains over 100 items, was developed by Bancy Mati in collaboration with SRI-Rice at Cornell University.

How to use the database:
You can look through the SRI-Africa research library in two ways: 1) a simple search box (top right), and 2) a set of standardized key word tags (lower left). These can be used alone or in combination.

However, to access full text articles, you will need to sign in to Zotero, and then formally join our Zotero-based SRI for Africa Research Network Group. It’s free to join the Network’s library group!
