African Online Digital Library

Posted by Marcus Zillman

African Online Digital Library

Based at Michigan State University, the African Online Digital Library (AODL) is “a portal to multimedia collections about Africa.” A collaborative project between MATRIX, the Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences, the African Studies Center, and universities and cultural heritage organizations in Africa, the site boasts sixteen distinct collections of videos, documentaries, images, and other multimedia resources. Whether readers start with a collection of video interviews with Muslim men and women in “Everyday Islam in Kumasi” (Ghana) or let their interest gravitate to the Community Video Education Trust where there are more than 90 hours of video documenting South African political activities in the 1980s and 1990s, there will be plenty here to edify and inform. Other topics include a series of podcasts on Africa Past & Present, a collection of African Oral Narratives, and many others. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2015.
