Our library hosts the Mahmoud Salih Sudan Collection, which makes our Sudan collection one of the most comprehensive of its kind in Europe. Large parts of the collection have been digitalised, and can be found in full-text at Bergen University Library.
Our library also includes the book collection of the Centre for Middle Eastern Studies. This collection is also available for search in Oria.
