Publications: Resource centres
Scriptoria’s resource centres are fully searchable online databases that make it easy for programmes to share their key knowledge products. A summary of each product also helps users to find the information they want. Coupled with handbooks and CDs (or flash sticks) to cater for stakeholders with poor internet access, these platforms are designed to provide a long term, sustainable resource long after programmes shut down.
CrossRoads Resource Centre (2014)
The Resource Centre that Scriptoria built for the Uganda Roads Industry Council (as part of the £18 million CrossRoads Programme) will fill a major information gap for roads-related projects in Uganda.
This highly searchable online platform gives easy online access to many valuable guidelines, reports and research products that were previously impossible to access. No wonder it’s been so highly praised.

SPARC Resource Centre (2013, 2015 and 2016)
The fully searchable online Resource Centre that Scriptoria produced for SPARC has been greeted with acclaim by policy-makers in Nigeria, with more than 4,000 accompanying handbooks and CDs being distributed almost overnight.
SPARC were so pleased with the impact of this tool that they ordered an update, which went live in 2015.

RIU Resource Library (2008)
Research into Use (RIU) was a pioneering DFID UK-funded programme designed to get new livelihood-improving development options into use on a grand scale – so that they could benefit large numbers of poor people.
During the first phase of this £37.5 million programme, Scriptoria worked with the Head of Communications to develop a resource library to provide easy access to information on the large number of technologies that RIU was working to promote.
