Abstract:The mission of the National English Literary Museum (NELM) in Grahamstown, South Africa, is to maintain and extend the nation's leading collection of southern African English literary heritage and to serve as a source of expertise through exemplary research, conservation, exhibitions and public programmes. The museum collects all creative writings by southern African authors who write in English, as well as critical writing on the authors and their works and writings on related subjects such as literary history, censorship and literary awards. This article provides an overview of NELM's history, its collections, research and outreach programmes, and satellite museums, and ends with a look to the future. Note. [ASC Leiden abstract]
