The Society for Libyan Studies Archive

The Society Archive includes collections of rare books, manuscripts, documents, photographs and drawings covering the history, antiquities, culture, languages, literature, art, institutions, customs and natural history of Libya.

The Archive is held at the University of Leicester. It is open to Society members by arrangement with the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History. The Society is in the process of producing a full inventory of the Archive contents, which will be posted on this website.

In the meantime, for more information about the archive or to arrange to visit, please contact the Society Publications Manager, Dr Victoria Leitch – email:
