Black Studies: Library Catalog for Books & Articles

An overview of resources at PSU Library for researching Black Studies, with an emphasis on African American Studies.

Using the Library Catalog

Search the PSU Library Catalog to find books at PSU and beyond as well as a selection of articles. You may request any book available in Summit to be delivered to the PSU Library for you.

In the catalog and library databases, look on the left side of your screen to find options to limit your search. For example, in the PSU Library Catalog, you can limit your results to "On the Shelf at PSU" (which refers to books) or "Peer Reviewed Journals" (under Availability) and Articles, eBooks, and Print Books (under Resource Type).  

You can also scroll down in the Catalog and use the Journal Title facet to narrow your search to journals in Black Studies (see second screen shot, below).
