Abstract
AFRIAMSLIC is the regional group of the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) for Africa. IAMSLIC provides a forum for sharing ideas and resources within the various aquatic and marine science disciplines. IAMSLIC has six regional groups: AFRIAMLIC, Cyamus, EURASLIC, Grupo Regional Latinoamericano, Pacific Islands, and SAIL. AFRIAMSLIC aims to exchange and explore ideas and issues of mutual concern through cooperation within Africa and to build strong links with other national, regional and international aquatic and marine science libraries and information networks. To enhance communication and resources sharing among members of the group and increase better access to information resources, an AFRIAMSLIC website will be developed under WordPress and hosted by IAMSLIC. The basic framework of the website is already created. The next steps will be the configuration and customization of the site as well as addition of new contents. The paper will report on the success and the challenges in the development of the website. The IAMSLIC conference in UGANDA in October 2018 will be used as an opportunity to introduce the new website.
