AOPL; the hub of Africa's academic research

About Us

Africa Online & Publications Library

The greatest challenge facing African researchers is the lack of ownership and high cost of publication due to the small number of online libraries, publishing houses, and research centres, resulting in limited access to research materials. Driven by this fact, Africa Online & Publications Library is built on the premise to increase visibility, accessibility and usage of research material for researchers across Africa.
