The Publishing, Books and Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa (PB&RSSA) collection is a unique collection of books, monograph series, journals, articles, and other documents on all aspects of publishing and book development in Sub-Saharan Africa. The collection was donated by Hans Zell to Kwara State University. The collection covers a period of twenty years, from 1996 to 2014, and is a continuation of an earlier collection and archive (for the 1990-1995) that he donated to the African Publishers Network/ APNET in Harare in 1995.
The print version of the collection is temporarily housed in the e-library and online version is currently undergoing serious work and will be available very soon. The physical collection consists of:

  1. Books, monograph series, essay collections, conference proceedings, book sector studies, book industry training manuals, theses and dissertations, as well as reference works
  2. A large number of journals, including complete runs of The African Book Publishing Record since it was first published in 1975; the African Pubishing Review and the Bellagio Publishing Network Newsletter; as well as complete runs or back issues of a number of book professional journals, such as the journal of Scholarly Publishing and Logos. Forum of the World Book Community, that have contained frequent articles on publishing and book studies in Africa and the developing world.
  3. Periodical articles, press clippings, correspondences, reports, studies, and surveys on many aspects of publishing and the book world in Africa, together with some unpublished material and ephemera.
