The Namibia Scientific Society was founded as a non-profit organisation in 1925 through the initiative of a group of influential Namibian individuals such as Doctor Louis Fourie and the well-known Dr. Heinrich Vedder.

The reference material in our library is updated continuously with new editions in an ongoing process being accessioned on the library computer system. In addition, for the advantage of researchers, our library is accessible through the University of Namibia Library computer system. We also function as a publisher by promoting the publication of scientific papers in our local journal as well as books dealing with topics such as Namibian history, fauna & flora, biographies, transport & communications, archaeology and travel reports.

The society has over 500 members, each with his or her special field of interest, which includes institutions and corresponding members internationally. To help share information with our esteemed members, supporters and the public in general, we also organise frequent public talks and excursions of a scientific nature, which are very popular with the public.

Newsletters
of the Namibia Scientific Society
in German & English
are regularly distributed by email. They inform about new publications as well as book launches, excursions. and presentations on scientific topics to take place in Namibia.

Any one interested is welcome to subscribe to the newsletter mailing list - using the NWG email address stipulated to the left of the article

The logo of the
Kuiseb Verlag
depicts a diamond.


Diamonds are one of Namibia's most precious natural resources that contribute greatly to
the country's economic and scientific research developments, since
the late 19th century.


In order to stay on track with new scientific and educational developments it is always our wish to attract younger researchers and interested members of the public who will assist us in sustaining the Society in the long term, by bringing in some new ideas and energy.

Due to demand by the local readership and tourists as well, the Kuiseb Verlag was founded to provide the book market with the more popular publications. This step proved to be very successful and over the years, the Society published more than 100 interesting titles already. Topics covered include history, fauna & flora, novels, information on Namibian art and children books with a Namibian background.


Library of the
Namibia Scientific Society
in Windhoek, Namibia

 


Books from the Namibia Scientific Society are for sale either through leading book stores in Namibia, some book sellers in South Africa or directly from the Society's offices in Windhoek.
In order to facilitate easier access to our publications for Namibia tourists from Europe, the Namibia Scientific Society has appointed a foreign agency, the ‘’Namibiana Buchdepot’’ in Germany, from where book orders are despatched internationally.
