ODINAFRICA aims at making library materials of the marine science libraries in Africa accessible locally through the creation of a collective catalogue of co-operating institutes’ library holdings. The databases were initially developed using the INMAGIC software. This was later converted to AgriOcean/DSpace and ABCD.The national catalogues were merged into a union catalogue and accessed online briefly. www.afrilib.odinafrica.org

ODINAFRICA also supported the development of an African Union list of Journals from information centers. The list, which currently has nearly 800 serial holdings, can be accessed through the IAMSLIC website: www.iamslic.org/unionlist/africa/index.php

ODINAFRICA also initiated the development of a Catalogue of Aquatic and Fisheries Publications from/about Africa, with more than 6000 records.
