Black History Month Display PosterThe Library offers many resources that document, commemorate, and celebrate Black history and experiences in the U.S. Each week this month, we’ll feature some of these resources. Today we highlight the book collection and primary sources online.

Book Collection
  • Book Display: Visit our Black History Month display near the Information Desk. Feel free to borrow books from the display!
  • Diversity Display Collection: Browse our Diversity Display Collection, located on the main floor in the GLA Reading Room.
  • Looking for a specific topic? Of course, books on African American history and experiences can be found throughout the Library – from Arts, to History, to Literature, to Science, and more. Search the Library Catalog for books on a topic of interest.
  • While most of our book collection is print books, you can browse a list of ebooks on the subject “African Americans – History” in our Library Catalog.
