After my stay in Cameroon from 1992 to 1994 and subsequent research work at the Faculty of Geography, University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, I have collected a library of web resources on Cameroon. Although I left the University and I am not engaged anymore in research, my web page on Cameroon on the Utrecht University's server continued to attract many visitors. After removal from the University's server, the information will now be offered on my own personal site at geocities.com. The pages still need some updating, links may be outdated. Any help will be appreciated!
