The periodical collection consists of ongoing and ceased journals. The breadth of its content is wide, ranging from comprehensively assembled titles on Namibia (a full spectrum of research periodicals and advertising brochures) to scholarly journals on the whole field of African studies. Since it is not always possible to obtain every edition of a journal, users are advised to check the catalogue information in the holdings field to verify availability of the edition they seek. The journal collection is currently the only BAB collection included in the catalogue of the university library.
