Information Training and Outreach Centre for Africa
ITOCA (Information Training & Outreach Centre for Africa) is a capacity building organisation aimed at enhancing information and communications technology (ICT) skills for African librarians, information specialists, scientists, researchers and students in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Formerly, TEEAL Africa Office, the ITOCA learning centre was established in February 1999 as a marketing and support office for Cornell University’s Albert R. Mann Library TEEAL (The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library) programme for Africa. Now, ITOCA spearheads programme support for TEEAL and Research4Life (AGORA, HINARIOARE and ARDI) in the region.

What We Do

ITOCA has trained over 20,000 academic and research professionals in information literacy courses focusing mainly on the use of e-resources under the Research4LifeTEEAL and CEPD Programme in the last 18 years.
