Here at the University of Edinburgh Library we’re developing our digital resources for African Studies.
New this month is trial access to two new online resources for African Studies – Africa Yearbook Online and African Studies Companion Online They are both published by Brill, and the trial period ends 1st July 2014. Trial access is available via http://www.ed.ac.uk/is/databases-trials. Please tell us what you think as this helps us make a case for purchase.
We recently upgraded our online subscription to Africa Confidential, a hugely important source of information for researchers interested in what is going on in contemporary Africa. Current stories feature the first steps by new Egyptian President El Sisi, and developments in a Red Sea Missile drama between Sudan and Iran. You can find Africa Confidential on the library catalogue or via the E-journals A-Z list.
We’re continuing to build our e-book collections in Africa Studies. Titles purchased recently include:
