African Language Materials Archive (ALMA)

The African Language Materials Archive (ALMA) is a valuable resource for teachers, literacy trainers, readers, language learners and scholars. It is a collaborative project initiated by WARA, WARC, UNESCO, Columbia University and the Digital Library of International Research (DLIR). The ALMA project includes a web-based electronic archive of original materials published in African languages.  Currently the archive contains E-Books in Wolof, Pulaar and Mandinka, collected from authors in Senegal and the Gambia. Materials in other languages will be continuously added. You can view the archive at the Digital Library for International Research. In addition to the E-books contained in the DLIR, you can access a wide range of African language materials, including video, on the ALMA website. 

The following Title VI Centers are generous supporters of ALMA and it is they who make this work possible:
