February is Black History Month.
I encourage everyone to take a look at the Oxford African American Studies Center database that the library subscribes to. It has a wealth of biographical and encyclopedic information for “those looking for information on people and events which have shaped African American and African history and culture.”
You can find it here: http://web.usfca.edu/Library/databases/Oxford_African_American_Studies_Center/
or go to the Library’s Start your Research page: http://web.usfca.edu/Library/research/Start_Your_Research/
and look for the Database A-Z list and select “O” for Oxford African American Studies Center.
Questions on how to maximize the usefulness of this database or to find other information resources relevant to African American studies? Please go to our Ask-A-Librarian page
where you’ll find multiple ways of contacting us with your research inquiry.
