Introducing the Library

Temporarily closed

The history of the library is closely related to that of the Center of African Studies (Centre d’études africaines) as well as to that of the teaching and research in African studies which were set up in the late 1950s at the 6th section of the École pratique des hautes études (EPHE). This section was to become in 1974 the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS). In 1970, the collections of the Centre d'analyse et de recherche documentaires pour l'Afrique noire (CARDAN) came to complete the existing collections. Nowadays the library numbers over 24,450 volumes and 586 periodicals.
