A Gumberg Library research guide


This research guide is designed to quickly lead the researcher to the best resources available at Gumberg Library on African American history. It will connect the user to reference work (both print and electronic), to books (both print and ebooks), databases for articles, videos, high quality websites, and selected non-fiction works on African Americans and their collective experiences here in the Americas. We hope you will find it useful.
