Library

The RMCA’s library network consists of a Central Library and 10 sublibraries, with their own reading room or a space where the works can be consulted.

The library collection consists of 130,000 monographs, of which a number of unique and rare works, and around 300 current scientific journals. Alongside this there are several hundred complete series.
It deals with diverse general subjects about Africa and in particular Central Africa, but is above all a reflection of the scientific disciplines which are studied in the RMCA.

The online catalogue of the RMCA’s library is included in Libis (select RMCA-catalogue).
