The International and Area Studies Library supports students, faculty, staff and members of the public who are researching Africa-related subjects. The library purchases materials and resources from and about Africa, mainly in English, French, and Portuguese but also in many African Languages. The collection covers all African countries and includes materials in more than 150 African languages. While the majority of the collection is located in the Main Stacks, there is a small Africa-specific reference collection available in the International and Area Studies Library. The collection is also scattered throughout many of the other campus libraries.
