Central Gateway to Information on Africa for Researchers Now Online

From the Announcement:

Finding relevant literature on a specific African topic or country - this is possible with the "internet library sub-saharan Africa" (ilissAfrica), which is now online and accessible to everyone. Users can search for books, anthologies, journal articles and Internet resources...They are then led directly to the corresponding website or shown at which library the book or journal article can be found. The portal is a joint project of the University Library in Frankfurt and the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies in Hamburg. Both institutions were made responsible for the Special Collections for Africa South of the Sahara by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in the 1960s and hence have the largest collections of Africa-related literature in Germany today.

The ilissAfrica portal offers its services in three languages: German, English, and French.
