Internet Explorers Find Africa at Penn
By Jerry Janda
Looking to make some contacts in Ethiopia? Writing a report on Togo? Searching for a Kenyan recipe? Then browse the Penn African Studies (PAS) Web Page ( . With a few mouse clicks, you can access a wealth of information on Africa. Originally planned as an academic database, the PAS page is a comprehensive source for anyone interested in Africa. Government employees, nongovernment organizations, students, teachers and others find the page useful. In fact, the Library of Congress considers the PAS page the main source for African studies. Photograph by Candace diCarlo Dr. Ali Dinar (left) and Dr. Sandra Barnes meet regularly to discuss
ways of improving the Penn African Studies Web Page
Every month, more than a quarter of a million Internauts visit the PAS site. These browsers represent nearly 80 different countries, few of which, ironically, are on the African continent. The PAS page first went on-line in March of 1993. Julie Sisskind, a graduate student, designed the page at Dr. Barnes' request. Dr. Barnes expected it to take the shape of an electronic bulletin board. But she got much more than a BBS. "I had envisioned it as information primarily for faculty and graduate students about jobs, opportunities to travel abroad in Africa, internships, language-study opportunities, fellowship opportunitiesinformation for your general, run-of-the-mill Africanist," Dr. Barnes said. "I did not envision it as information about Africa for the general public."
