Most of Jane Meyers’ professional career has been involved with libraries and information for international development, particularly in the agricultural sector. She worked in that capacity at the World Bank and the U.S. National Agricultural Library, for USAID, and as a consultant to a number of international organizations. During her seven years living in southern Africa, as well as on numerous other trips to Africa, she taught and spoke to many library groups in Malaŵi, Zambia and other African countries, and has visited scores of libraries throughout the continent as well as participating in the formulation of National Information Policies of Malaŵi and Zambia. While in Zambia in the late 1990s, Jane started a library for street children in Lusaka. Upon her return the U.S. in 2001, she started the Lubuto Library Project, which has opened two libraries and is now working in partnership with the Zambia Library Service to build seven more libraries with the support of Zambia’s Ministry of Education.
