Welcome to the library resource guide for AAAS 157a: African American Political Thought. This guide provides a list of recommended resources and research tips for identifying sources. 

The Library knows that there are extra challenges to conducting research during a pandemic. We're offering a number of services to help out during this time:

  • Contactless lockers in Usdan!
  • Paging service - we’ll pull most things from the stacks for pickup
  • Scan on Demand - get some sections or chapters of a book emailed to you as a PDF.
  • Interlibrary loan - if we don’t have it, we’ll ask another library to send it
  • Extended hours for our Research Help chat service - Use the yellow slideout button on the right side of library webpages. 

Please feel free to contact Laura Hibbler (, library liaison for history, with any questions, or schedule a research appointment.

Ask questions at any stage of your research process: 

  • How do I choose or narrow a research topic? 
  • How do I find sources? 
  • How do track down sources that are hard to find?
  • How do I cite my sources?
