Book loans and article copies
We are open for interlibrary loans throughout the Nordic countries. Please order books and article copies through your local library. You are also welcome to borrow directly from the library while visiting. In that case you must return the books at your own expense.

Ask the library
We answer questions about Africa and help with literature searches.
Our publication Studying Africa : A guide to the resources is an introduction to African studies, primarily within social sciences. Guidance and other support for literature and fact searches. Free to download.
For visiting users
Persons who need to use the library collections for their research or major papers, are given the possibility to use the library at other times than the regular opening hours, only, however, by agreement and when the library staff is on duty. Please contact the library!
