BASLER AFRIKA BIBLIOGRAPHIEN
Namibia Resource Centre
Southern Africa Library
The library's collection of books focuses primarily on southern Africa and publications originating from the region. Its
holdings of publications printed in Namibia since the early 1950s are probably the most extensive outside Africa. The
collection contains publications in European and African languages and emphasises the social sciences and humanities. The
rare-book collection of early accounts of European explorations covers the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. Special attention is
being given to material documenting the history of the Swiss in Africa.
The collection of periodicals includes both colonial and current titles, some of which are not to be found in other institutions in
Switzerland. Current periodicals from southern Africa include newspapers, community newsletters, business bulletins and
The collection of bibliographies is intended to cover all major geographic regions and subject issues concerning sub-Saharan
Africa. They enable us to maintain the original purpose of the institution, i.e. to provide bibliographical information to
researchers and others interested in Africa.
The archival collection consists of several sections. One section primarily holds personal papers of individuals from Namibia
and Switzerland. Another section consists of press cuttings and grey literature (pamphlets, reports, posters, etc.) from
southern Africa and includes material from various Anti-Apartheid movements. Printed material concerning 'SWAPO of
Namibia' is regarded as extensive. In addition, a small collection of historical photographs from Namibia is being kept. The
map collection contains 800 maps on Namibia, at present on loan to the Institute of Geography of the University of Basel.
Reference guides on all archival holdings are available to researchers.
