The Bank’s staff are provided with information resources on all aspects of African trade and trade finance by the Library and Knowledge Center. Currently holding over 3,000 titles, both physical and electronic databases, the library is implementing an integrated library management system to ensure that the growing number of books, journals, and other reference materials in the library are easily accessible by staff.
The Library and Knowledge Center is an Afreximbank initiative to strengthen the Bank’s overall response to opportunities and challenges related to trade and trade finance in Africa, and, in particular, to address the information needs of the Bank’s stakeholders.
As an integral part of the Bank’s knowledge management function the library acts as an important tool for the implementation of the Bank’s knowledge vision “To be a Center of Excellence in African Trade Matters.”
The Library and Knowledge Center aims to be the point of reference to support the operations, research and management activities of the Bank, so that the Bank’s know-how, information and experience is shared inside and (as appropriate) outside the organization with clients, partners and stakeholders, with the ultimate objective of serving as the provider of information resources relevant to Trade Finance.
