West Africa Institute - WAI

In line with the mission of the West Africa Institute to promote innovative research, support knowledge-based decision-making as well as build and strengthen capacity in issues concerning African regional integration, the WAI Library has been established within the National Library of Cabo Verde (NL) in 2013 as part of the innovative research and consulting project "Sustainable Regional Integration in West Africa and Europe" in cooperation with the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI), financed by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

With over 600 books, journals, academic papers and scholarly materials in printed format, the WAI Library offers its users a state-of-the-art collection on regional integration in Africa and beyond. Within the framework of the African Access Initiative of the non-profit, digital library Journal Storage (short: JSTOR) based in New York, WAI also provides users access to a wide array of academic journals and articles in electronic format within the JSTOR Online Library.

With the establishment of Master program on African Regional at UNI-CV, the WAI Library will play a very critical role in identifying, evaluating, procuring and conducting research. It will be made available to the faculties and students for their teaching, learning and research assignments. Furthermore, residential WAI Fellows and other regional integration researchers and practitioners may use it to advance their work. All WAI Library resources can be searched, using the bibliographic database of the WAI Catalogue.

Being a reference library, WAI documentation is not available for borrowing, but can only be read within the premises of the National Library of Cabo Verde and with the permission of the NL Librarian. Exceptions for borrowing might be made for residential WAI Researchers and Fellowship holders after written application.

The WAI Library is operated and managed by WAI Coordinator Ablam Benjamin Akoutou, supported by his assistant Aksana Aracy Monteiro Brito. The NL Librarian, Cheila Antunes Gomes Semedo, is the responsible for the day-to-day management of the WAI library during the general opening hours of NL:

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm
