The Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington’s Information School was
commissioned by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to conduct a performance evaluation of Namibia’s
regional libraries, officially called the Regional Study and Resource Centers (RSRC) Activity. The Activity included the
construction of three regional libraries in underserved areas of Namibia in an effort to improve access to information
resources, training materials and programs, and study facilities. The performance evaluation comprises a set of
quantitative and qualitative approaches to answer questions related to the relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability
of the regional libraries. This is a summary and companion piece to the final report of the evaluation.
