Somali Collections

The Indiana University Libraries have a major collection of materials on Somalia and in the Somali language. The collection has been developed over the years as part of the African Studies Collection. The collection was enhanced by a substantial gift of materials from the personal library of Bogumil Andrzejewski, materials deposited by the Somali Studies International Association since 1980, and materials acquired with support from a U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.

Significant sub-collections include the following:

  • Somaliana Special Collections at IU Bloomington
  • Digitized Somali Language Books and Posters
