Try exploring the Library Catalog for books related to your topic. The catalog is the main way to locate books, as well as journals and videos in the Brandeis library collections.
Start by brainstorming keywords and search terms. Use subject headings or descriptors to help generate search terms.
To identify works written by authors such as Malcolm X and James Baldwin, try conducting a search and limiting by author using the menu option to the left of your search results.
For this class, you may also be interested in searching for books by a particular author. Use Advanced Search to search by author or run a search and then use the menu options to limit your results to works by the author of interest.
If Brandeis does not have the book you need, try looking for books from other libraries:
WorldCat is a library catalog that contains millions of records for books and other materials held in libraries worldwide. Search for your item and then use the "Request Item from Interlibrary Loan" button or link on the item page to place your request.
