Aluka is a digital library of scholarly resources from and about Africa. It has three major content areas: African cultural heritage sites and landscapes, African plants, and struggles for freedom in South Africa. Each content area includes a wide variety of high-quality scholarly materials contributed by Aluka’s partners around the globe, ranging from archival documents, periodicals, books, reports, manuscripts, and reference works, to three-dimensional models, maps, oral histories, plant specimens, photographs, and slides. New materials are added to the collections on an ongoing basis. The rich textual and visual information in these collections provide excellent materials for research and teaching in African studies.
