African Studies Research Guide

African Studies Archival Collections @ IUB

The IU Libraries African Studies Collection includes several noteworthy collections of archival materials. Two of these collections, the Digital Somali Library, and the Nuer Field Notes Project consist of materials that have been digitized, and whose digital facsimiles can be accessed online. Please contact the Librarian for African Studies at afstlib @ indiana . edu to make arrangements to use the H. K. Banda Archive and the Liberian Collections on-site.

Attention Visiting Researchers

The African Studies Librarian position is currently vacant, limiting our ability to provide reference and research support to the archival collections. For this reason, the Liberian Collections are currently closed for research.   

Please email the African Studies Collection at afstlib @ indiana . edu for any questions you may have about access to the archival collections.

Thank you.
