We regret that access to the above database remains temporarily unavailable.
The database is still in the process of moving to a new host institution in Africa, Kwara State University Library in Nigeria. Read the full (2015) press release here. Unfortunately, due to a series of technical problems relating to metadata mapping and software functionality, as well as ongoing software development and data transfer issues, there have been serious delays in the migration of the database. It is now hoped that the new hosts will be able to relaunch it sometime during the course of 2018, on a more dynamic, Drupal-based open source content management platform. The first batch of updates and over 500 entirely new records will then also be added to the database.
When up, a link to the new database will appear on this page.
For more information about the new database to be launched by Kwara State University Library, contact Teslim B. Balogun, Project Director, PB&RSSA, Kwara State University, PMB 1530, Malete, Kwara State, Nigeria 23431.
Enquiries about access to the physical collection of books, journals, and other material – on many aspects of publishing and book development in Sub-Saharan Africa, donated by Hans Zell to KWASU in 2015 – should also be addressed to the above contact. Alternatively, contact Florence Olabisi Ajani, Principal Librarian/Library Coordinator (and Acting University Librarian) Kwara State University.
