Research in African Studies

African Studies is an interdisciplinary field, one that supports research in a range of topics related to Africa and people of African descent.  The resources on this guide are intended to provide a grounding in library resources & research techniques available in our library, as well as facilitate access to materials elsewhere.

This guide is a starting point; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
