Volume 2 examines the setting, operations and effects of community telecenters. It describes the telecenter experiences of a variety of local and often rural communities, exploring the management structures and mechanisms that have been established to support these telecenters. The book provides profiles of telecenter usage and discusses the potential and challenges of setting up and maintaining community telecenters in the context of poor information infrastructure and limited human capacity. It will be useful for researchers, policy- and decision-makers, and development practitioners and professionals with interests or active programs in the area of 'ICT for development,' particularly those with a focus on universal access and universal-service or public access centers. It will also be a very useful reference tool for scholars, students and academics.
