Africa Focus: Sights and Sounds of a Continent
Africa Focus brings together two categories of resources: research and teaching materials collected by University of Wisconsin faculty and staff; and unique or valuable items related to these fields held by the University of Wisconsin Libraries. This collection contains more than 3000 slides, 500 photographs, 50 hours of sounds from forty-five different countries, as well as a large number of difficult to find texts that librarians, scholars, and other subject specialists have deemed important to these fields of study.
Africa South of the Sahara
This gateway, from the libraries of Stanford University, is searchable by country or topic.  Users are presented with links to online information resources.
African Studies Internet Resources
Columbia University's collection of African Studies Internet Resources is an on-going compilation of electronic bibliographic resources and research materials on Africa available on the global Internet, created under the purview of the African Studies Department of Columbia University Libraries. Electronic resources from Africa are organized by region and country.
African Timelines
African Timelines presents a convenient and detailed chronology of African history and culture from the beginnings through the late twentieth century. The site is colourful, nicely designed, and offers many helpful web links. It operates out of Central Oregon Community College.
Dutch Portuguese Colonial History (DPCH)
Dutch Portuguese Colonial History (DPCH) offers a wealth of eclectic and whimsical resources on the Dutch and Portuguese intrusion in Africa. Colonialism in Asia, Oceania, and other areas is treated as well. Maintained as a hobby by Marco Ramerini in Italy, the site is graphics intensive and may take a couple of minutes to load.
The Story of Africa

Africa's top historians take a fresh look at the events and characters that have shaped the continent from the origins of humankind to the end of South African apartheid.  A comprehensive, multi media site, produced by the BBC, and designed for general audiences.
