Penn Libraries - Africana Studies Collection

Over the past 20 years the Library has purchased monographs relating to Africana Studies at a high level to support consistently high interest and growing curricular needs.  Aside from scholarly books, novels, genre fiction, poetry and play scripts are all well represented.  Nonetheless, BorrowDirect access to the collections of Ivy Plus Libraries serves the essential purposes of filling gaps in our collections and providing second copies when Penn's are unavailable.  Aside from books, the Library has a robust collection of electronic primary and secondary source resources to support research about the African diaspora during all time periods and in all locations.  The video collection in DVD and streaming formats is another strength.
