SCOLMA directory

SCOLMA encourages the sharing of information about libraries and special collections on Africa in the UK and through Europe. We published our first print directory in 1963, and followed it with 4 updated editions over the next 30 years. A current directory of libraries and special collections can now be found at Africa Desk, where we encourage libraries to add and update their details.
