Resource centres and knowledge nodes
Part of Practical Action’s ambition is to get information to as many people as possible. In order to do this, we not only put as much information up onto the Practical Action website as we can, but we also run a number of resource centres and knowledge nodes in the countries in which we work.
These points of information have acquired a number of names depending on their location and on what they offer.
Larger centres are known as resources centres or libraries while some of the smaller access points are known as knowledge nodes or local knowledge centre. In Bangladesh you will see the name called Gyaner Haat while in Peru they may use the name infocabin. Practical Action’s knowledge centres are shown below:
