The new African Studies Guide provides links to a wealth of resources such as films, music, art, books, journals, maps and data for African studies. It also includes information about library support for scholarly communication and digital repository services. The Library encourages all faculty to utilize the Guide as both a research and instructional tool, and to link it to Sakai course pages for instruction.
