The Library has a comprehensive collection relating to the study of Africa, Asia and the Middle East; with multiple copies of many books to support the courses taught in the School. If you know the specific details of a particular book or author and you would like to see if it is available in the Library, then please check the online Library catalogue.
Once you have identified relevant books you should see a 'classmark' for the particular book you are interested in. Each book has a unique classmark and you will need this to locate the book in the Library.
If you would like to see which books the Library holds on a particular subject you may search the Library catalogue either by keywords or by subject terms. Please refer to the Using the catalogue helpsheet for more information on how to do this.
You may want to find out the details of all books which have been written on a certain subject or by a certain author. In addition to the Library catalogue you may wish to use a bibliography which lists details of books by subject.
There are many bibliographies which exist in print and some are also available electronically so that they can be searched for keywords or authors. To find a bibliography for your particular subject interest, please refer to Subject Guides or contact the relevant Librarian.
