The CAMECO library is a unique treasure trove for publications and documentation in the field of communication. We greatly appreciate this cooperation, which provides access to academic gems that would otherwise be beyond our reach. We established CAMECO fifty years ago, and at the time had no idea that it would develop in this way and provide services way beyond geographical or religious barriers. Ad multos annos!

The CAMECO online-library is an indispensable resource for my daily work. CAMECO’s library is unique, in Germany and internationally: I know of no other library which so thoroughly covers the field of international media, and thereby considers not only books, but also a comprehensive collection of grey literature. Keep up the good work!
Christian Mihr, Executive Director, Reporters Without Borders, Germany
I find it rather exceptional that CAMECO has this marvellous annotated bibliography in areas broadly related to communication, media and development! I make use of the resource when I research for an article, before planning and running a training course or facilitating a participatory workshop – and I have often found resources I did not know about in advance. The online search system works well for me – appropriate and good. A wonderful and very valuable resource.

The summary of publications periodically sent by CAMECO is an invaluable contribution for us here in Latin America, because it is a source of information that allows us to know a very useful and diverse selection of research and publications to which we would hardly otherwise have access.
Gustavo Gómez, Director, Latin American Media Regulation and Convergence Observatory (OBSERVACOM), Uruguay
My query on a recent posting, where my colleagues and I had lost track of a Handbook in which they had published, was indexed in the CAMECO publications update. You responded to my query, and we were finally able to see our work in print! Neither the editor nor the publisher, despite requests, had sent these authors copies of their own chapters, let alone the whole book.
Keyan Tomaselli, Communication Professor, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
I often use the publications update when I'm researching something, be it for a consultancy or for an academic paper. I find it really useful that it's updated regularly and the annotations and excerpts are really clear, comprehensive and well-written. It's nice that it's searchable with a good index, both of authors and countries, as well as being well-organised, so that finding a handbook is just as easy as a conference paper. Sometimes I'll be looking for something but will come across lots of other interesting materials on the way. It's a real treasure trove of interesting and up-to-date materials.

The CAMECO library is a unique resource for academics and development practitioners. Nowhere else are all relevant publications in the field of media and development so easily accessed, tracing also the historical development of international media assistance.
Jan Lublinski, Head Research and Evaluation, Deutsche Welle Akademie
The CAMEO website provides a unique and unrivalled resource for both scholars and practitioners working in media and communication for development and social change. As a scholar, the CAMECO catalogue was critical for my PhD research and my recent book “Rethinking Media Development through Evaluation”, providing the most complete and well-organised database of reports and publications for our field. The bi-annual compilation of publications is similarly an invaluable resource for staying up-to-date with new ideas and knowledge in a field where grey literature is so vital but also so dispersed.
