FRE 367: North Africa: Start


This guide will support your research for your course, especially as you explore various topics. Think of it as a springboard; while the guide doesn't contain every single source available on North Africa (not even close!), it will give you a solid foundation and inspire you to search further.  

Some tips:

  • Don't hesitate to ask if you've got questions! Send me an email - I enjoy helping you solve any research problems you have. We can work via email or set up a virtual or in person time to chat.
  • You can also find library and research help at the library's Information Desk or via Reference Services.

If you are new to the library or need a refresher, consult our Library FAQs and overview of the Library. We also have a guide on how to do research well - use it to brush up and expand your research skills! And since everyone can use a refresher on how to find books in the library, we have a guide for that, too.
