The document known to wildlife conservation specialists in southern Africa as the "blue book", Conservation and wildlife management in Africa : the proceedings of a workshop organized by the U.S. Peace Corps at Kasungu National Park, Malawi, October 1984 edited by the late R.H.V. Bell and E. McShane-Caluzi and produced through Office of Training & Program Support, Forestry & Natural Resources Sector, U.S. Peace Corps, has been added to HOORC's library collections. The book, donated to the library by the United States Peace Corps, is considered a core source of insights for wildlife monitoring in the region. It now forms a part of the the collection of books and reports of the late Richard Bell that are being processed and catalogued in HOORC's Library through the knowledge management component of the BIOKAVANGO Project.
