Abstract
Information production in our societies is getting more and more expansive. In Benin Republic, marine and aquatic information is produced by many organizations such as Benin Fisheries and Oceanologic Research Institute (IRHOB), Fishery Production Office, Cotonou Port Authority, some laboratories of Abomey-Calavi University, etc. Many of these institutions are working at the national level. The ODINAFRICA program national network was created on the lead of IRHOB. This network is still working today. With the functioning of these institutions, it is clear that a lot of information is being collected on different topics within the domain. All coastal and marine information is being sharing through this network and among all stakeholder and policy decision makers. Regarding the growing information needs of actors in the domain, what do we do to meet the needs of each information seeker? This paper describes tactics used by the library of Benin Institute for Halieutic and Oceanographic Research (IRHOB) not only to follow the national rhythm of information production in the field but also to provide its users with the appropriate information. A lot of information can be found on IRHOB’s website: www.nodc-benin.org
