Dear colleagues, HURIDOCS gladly announces the second volume in a new series of brief, practical manuals aimed to help build the capacity of human rights organisations with regard to monitoring and documentation. The Human Rights Monitoring and Documentation Series consists of two kinds of manuals: a "what is" manual provides an overview of a certain topic, and a "how to" manual is meant to impart specific skills. The second volume is called What is Monitoring and is now available on the HURIDOCS Web site <http://www.huridocs.org/tools.htm>. This practical manual is intended for documentalists and information workers of human rights organisations. It deals with the following issues: what is monitoring, purposes of monitoring, types of monitoring, methods of monitoring, and data analysis. This volume has been written by Manuel Guzman and Bert Verstappen. It is at the moment available only in English, and can be printed in HTML and PDF formats. The first volume in the series, "What is Documentation", is also available on our Web site, in English and French. The volumes in this Series are especially designed for small non-governmental human rights organisations which often have limited resources and a small staff who are assigned multiple tasks. The handy size of the manuals make them excellent reference materials. In addition, they are written in a style that facilitates learning and could serve effectively as materials for training, including individualised and self-initiated learning. During 2001, the following volumes will be added in this series: How to Set Up Your Documentation Centre How to Index How to Search for Information How to Record Names of Persons With best regards, Bert Verstappen HURIDOCS 48, chemin du Grand-Montfleury CH-1290 Versoix, Switzerland tel. 41.22.755 5252, fax 41.22.755 5260 firstname.lastname@example.org, www.huridocs.org ========== HURIDOCS-Tech listserv ========== Send mail intended for the list to <email@example.com>.
