The Digital Somali Library
The Digital Somali Library (DSL) provides full-text, online
access to 137 books from Indiana University Bloomington's
Somali collection. IU's Somali collection ranks among the top-
tier of such collections in the world and, in many cases, it
includes unique items.
The DSL is a first step towards providing broader access to
these materials. The digitization of more items in the
collection is anticipated in the near future. In addition to the
digitized books, the DSL also includes an up-to-date finding
aid which is keyword-searchable and links to the full text of
the digitized books, as well as an image database of Somali
posters and a list of Somali websites useful to scholars.
