The Department has its own reference library containing both classics in the combined disciplines of sociology, social anthropology, and psychology as well as selected local and overseas journals and magazines. Books include reports and ethnographies as well as theoretical tracts. Initially, the library was developed with assistance from the Netherlands University Fund for International Cooperation between 1980 and 1989. The Department Library is one of the few specialized libraries within the Faculty of Arts. Students also have access to a large collection of publications in the main University Library.
