Current African newspapers are in Green Library, the Information Center area, first floor.

There are TWO sections for current African newspapers.
One - a few titles are in front of the Magazine Racks.

Some African newspapers are treated like Magazines / Journals (for example Namibia Economist) and current issues will be in the Current Periodicals section, Information Center, first floor, Green Library.
