Africana and Black Studies: A Guide to Library Research

Welcome to the Africana and Black Studies Research Guide!

Welcome to the Africana and Black Studies research guide. Resources on this guide deal with the study of all aspects of Africa and Africans, African Americans, the African Diaspora, black studies in general, and race studies.

The databases linked below are great places to start your research, but we have so many more. To find databases related to Africa and the wider diaspora (i.e., the Caribbean and wider Americas), see the Africa and Diaspora Databases A-Z tab. To find databases related to specifically African Americans and their experiences, see the African American Databases A-Z tab.

For assistance with finding resources, please ask a librarian through the Ask Us! slide-out.
