Additional Information

Aluka is a not-for-profit initiative partnering with key libraries, museums, and archives around the globe to build a sustainable digital library of collections from and about the developing world, focusing, to begin with, on Africa. Aluka's mission is to assemble these materials online and to benefit global learning and research by providing a powerful set of search and analysis tools.
