Self-description:

“SOAS is a leader in the study of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and our library with its Archives & Special Collections is the HEFCE-designated National Research Library for these regions of the world. We are in the process of putting our collections of rare manuscripts, books, photographs, audio and film material on-line, to be freely available for everyone. The first collection to be made available is the photographic archive of Christoph von Fuerer-Haimendorf (1909-1995). This collection is widely recognised as the world’s most comprehensive visual documentation of tribal cultures in South Asia and the Himalayas. […] This Web site is under continual development, so please check back frequently for new features.”
