  The British Library
by uglyscot

This library contains copies of all books printed, documents, maps et. There is a section devoted to Africa and Asia.
A reader's ticket has to be obtained when you go in, so have some identification.
You order documents or microfilm by number from an index and then there is a wait till they are delivered.

I found it exciting to see documents written by my great great grandfather, to see his handwriting and signature.
For researchers it is an absolute must.
