List of languages of African materials cataloged at Yale, 2007-2012

Between 2007 and 2012, the African Collection at Yale processed over 5000 items in African languages, some from the backlog along with many incoming books.  These represented a little over 300 languages, accounting for about a fifth of the languages found on the continent.

We were fortunate to have the assistance of the Arcadia Fund and the leadership of Dorothy C. Woodson in pursuing this effort.

The list of languages represented, along with the quantities of materials cataloged and ISO 639-3 codes, can be found in the spreadsheet attached below.
