Encyclopedias and Dictionaries
Finding Books To find books in Jackson Library it's best to use a keyword search in the Library Catalog . Examples: "african americans and civil rights" or "Greensboro sit-ins." In recent years the term "african american" has become a standard term used for books. For historical topics it is best also to use older terms such as "afro american," "negro," "negroes," and "blacks." Finding Periodical Articles Because African-American Studies is interdisciplinary, you need to use the databases and indexes in the subject area closest to your topic to find journal articles. For example, if you have a literature topic use the English sources; if you have a psychology topic use the Psychology sources. To help choose a database choose a subject from Electronic Databases by Subject.

    COLLECTION AREA African and African-American Studies GENERAL PURPOSE Materials on African-American life and culture in the Dartmouth College Library system are collected not only to meet instructional needs for specific courses offered as part of the African and African-American Studies program (AAAS) but also as general resources in support of courses offered within disciplinary boundaries (e.g., history, sociology, anthropology, and others). These materials also reflect student and faculty research interests in a wide variety of academic areas, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. DARTMOUTH COLLEGE PROGRAM The existing Program, given permanent status in 1978, has expanded from an initial concentration on the African-American experience to a more inclusive perspective embracing Africa and the African diaspora (especially the Caribbean) as well. Accordingly, the collection building process is also designed to meet the requirements of those whose particular interests lie in African Studies. The Program is interdisciplinary in nature. To qualify for a certificate or a minor in AAAS, students must take six courses: four in the program, including an independent research course or seminar, and two from the list of approved courses elsewhere in the curriculum.

    History Affiliations About this Website Administration History The Caribbean Literary Studies Group started in 1999 with the goal of creating imaginative and productive spaces to hold discussions about Caribbean Literature, Culture and the Arts. The group is made up of graduate students (M.F.A., M.A., and Ph.D.), alumnae, faculty and other interested parties from the University of Miami community and the Greater Miami area who have a serious interest in topics related to Caribbean culture. CLS wishes to continue the presence of bold and active scholarship began by the Caribbean Writers' Summer Institute which ran at the University of Miami from 1991-1996. Following the CWSI, the English Department was accepted into the UWI Consortium and hosted the XVIth Annual Conference on West Indian Literature. The group's major advisor is Dr. Sandra Pouchet Paquet (Professor of English). Dr. Patricia Saunders (Assistant Professor of English), Fred D'Aguiar (Former Director of Creative Writing), Dr. Lillian Manzor (Associate Professor of Foreign Languages and Literatures), and Dr. Marc Brudzinski (Assistant Professor of Foreign Languages and Literatures) are affiliated faculty members. Since 1993, the University of Miami has seen a steady increase in the number of graduate students interested in Caribbean Literary and Cultural Studies. CLS facilitates Caribbean scholarship by hosting group activities including guided discussion groups on Caribbean texts and theories, scholarly presentations, film screenings, and talks by guest speakers.

    This overview focuses on the Library's holdings of materials by and about African-Americans. The study of African-Americans (persons of African heritage in the United States) is not just a subset of American studies, but also requires the use of resources relating to the history and literature of Africa and other countries where black people have lived. The collections at the Library are organized in such a way that the African and Middle Eastern Division is responsible for resources relating to the African continent, and the Hispanic Division holds primary responsiibility for Afro-Caribbean resources. The resources represented at the Library include all formats: manuscripts, newspapers, serials, microform, motion pictures, and other genres.
    The absence of a special African-American collection impedes an accurate estimation of its size. Although no special count has been made of all the subject areas covered by African-American studies, we may roughly estimate the size of the collection at approximately 50,000 books and periodicals, based on a combined count of the African-American history and literature classes, and classes dealing with slavery and the slave trade, the Civil War, and civil rights.

An academic discipline is a branch of knowledge which is formally taught, either at the university, or via some other such method.

As historically the vast majority of those in the United States of African descent were black, the term is not typically used to apply to non-black Africans, such as Arabs from northern Africa. Most African Americans are descendants of persons brought to the Americas as slaves between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries. (Those whose ancestors were brought as slaves to the Caribbean, or to Latin America, but who have come to the United States as free people, are sometimes classified as
