African Studies Institute Library

The African Studies Institute maintains a library in Room 201H at its main offices in the Holmes/Hunter Building. The library has a rich, well-established collection of digital and print titles on Africa, including various texts, videos, news reports, and journal magazines.

The collections within the ASI library come from material donations from ASI faculty and community supporters as well as ASI acquisitions. Languages collected have included works published in English, French, and in the African languages taught in the university curriculum, principally Amharic, African dialects of Arabic, Yoruba, Hausa, and Swahili.

The materials in the library are well cataloged and interdisciplinary, with a primary subject focus on the humanities and social sciences. Our extensive collections are open to students, faculty, and the general public.

Our staff offers a wide range of services, such as reference assistance, library orientation and instruction, and individual consultations. For information on checking out and using library resources, contact the ASI offices.
