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. 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."
