The collection

EPA’s library is a reference centre in the fields of conservation and promotion of African cultural heritage. It contains two sorts of materials:

• printed materials, and
• audiovisual materials

Printed materials

The library contains more than 3000 entries. They cover the following subjects: conservation (sites and museums), architecture, museology, heritage law, exhibitions, exhibition mounting techniques, natural heritage, public education, heritage economy, African arts, history of art, prevention and security, computer science, tourism, guides. Reports, dissertations and periodicals complete this ever growing collection.

Audiovisual materials

They contain video tapes, CDs and CD-ROMs on preventive conservation, museums, archives and anthropology. The entire CCI video tape collection on conservation is available. These audiovisual materials are to be consulted at the library, which provides a TV monitor, a video player and two Pentium PCs.

Documentary research

In addition to the manual card-indexes, users can consult the resources with a Winisis database of 1000 references via a local GenIsisWeb interface functioning under Apache.
Bibliographies can also be obtained by correspondence provided that the enquiry is clear and precise.


Loans are reserved to members of the library and provided the membership card is shown at each transaction. Periodicals are not included but photocopies may be made on request depending on the librarian’s decision.
