The Nordic Africa Institute

Library

We are a large special library focused on contemporary Africa, mainly within social sciences.

No regular walk-in use.

Our collections are available by pick-up ordering: you order by e-mail and make an appointment for the next day for a quick pick-up of the wanted title(s).

It is currently not possible to book a visit to browse the shelves etc.

You may book a librarian for guidance via Zoom.

Please check here for new information after 24th of January 2021.

Email: library@nai.uu.se

Pick-up time for orders: Monday-Thursday 13.00–15.00.

Phone (staffed during agreed pick-up time): 018-471 52 70
We may answer the phone outside pick-up time when possible. Due to our irregular presence at the office however, the main contact outside individual pick-up time is through our e-mail above. Please see our Contact us page, for staff contact details.

Also note that we're closed with no service December 24 – January 10.
