In Development: Online Archive / Encyclopedia for Studies of Igbo Peoples

In development: an online archive of Igbo studies. “The Igbo Studies Archive is a lifetime digital project that seeks to provide detailed, scholarly information on key topics in all areas of Igbo studies. The archive will be an extensive resource, with contributions from the Igbo community at home and abroad as well as experts in Igbo studies around the world. The online archive will involve the digitisation of existing content and the creation of new content by specialists in Igbo studies. It will include digital objects such as text, and audiovisual material relating to Igbo studies. The archive will consist of a broad range of content, including the Igbo diaspora, oral histories as well as profiles of on every town in Igboland.” For more information about the Igbo people check out this page at the University of Iowa.
