Mahmoud Salih Collection

The Resource Centre holds one of the largest and most comprehensive collections on the Sudan.

We are happy to look after the unique book collection on the Sudan compiled by the Sudanese businessman Mahmoud Salih.

Several of the books in the collection of more than 2000 volumes date back to the 18th century.

Together with the Sudan-related collections of CMI and UiB, the Resource Centre holds one of the largest and most comprehensive collections on the Sudan. The catalogue is continuously updated as new books are added.

Large parts of the collection have been digitalized, and can be found in full-text at Digitalt by Bergen University Library.
