African-American History Month
African-American History Month begins on February 1st and many students will be looking for information to write papers and complete assignments. A good place to start is the subject guide for African-American History Month. The guide provides a list of reference books, databases, magazines, newspapers, and websites you can use to find the information you need. For example, if you need information about African-American leaders in Birmingham, a great reference book to use is called Who’s Who in Black Birmingham. A separate list of reference books for younger students is also included in the guide. There are three databases that focus specifically on African Americans: African American Experience, African American Studies Center, and African-American History Online. Need to know which African-American magazines you can find in the library? The guide provides this information as well as links to African-American newspapers and websites about African-American History Month. As you begin your online search, be sure to use the subject guide for African-American History Month.
