Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The African Publishers Network is a pan-African, non-profit, collaborative network that exists to connect and exchange information between African publishing associations with the goal to promote and strengthen indigenous publishing. Prior to the foundation of APNET in 1992, there was no easy way for those involved in publishing in Africa to share information and learn from one another's experiences. A database did not exist with the addresses of libraries, bookshops or fellow publishers; each individual entity was functioning on its own without the advantages that come with networking and communication. After several conferences and seminars focused on solving the problems within the African publishing and book trade industry, it was concluded that "the need for networking as a means of information-sharing became paramount. It was necessary to set up an umbrella body which would be a network of publishers in Africa." In 1992, delegates from 9 countries founded the African Publishers Network at a conference in Harare, Zimbabwe.
