African-American Resources: A GCLC Guide.
King, Charles D., Comp.; And Others
This document provides a bibliography of materials and a pathfinder, directing users to available resources on African Americans in Greater Cincinnati (Ohio) and Northern Kentucky. This guide is designed to assist students and researchers of all levels in locating information on African Americans. The guide begins with a pathfinder that directs the user to various types of resources available and to subjects that can be used to locate materials within their libraries. The sources listed under background information in this section provide summaries of topics and issues in Afro-American studies. Usually the sources contain an explanation and definition of the issue, identify important persons and groups, and contain a list of other sources of interest. The pathfinder section explains the use of the library catalog and guides to periodicals. Following the pathfinder is a list of standard works that can be consulted by the general reader as well as the beginning scholar. The categories reflect African-American culture; economics; history in greater Cincinnati, northern Kentucky, and the United States as a whole; arts; literature; and social and political conditions. These sections are followed by a list of major collections of primary materials and a list of current and historical journals. The collections can be in manuscript, microform, or paper formats. In using these two sections, one should consult with the holding library. Finally, a directory of institutions describes the African-American collections of responding organizations, and includes the hours, addresses, and other practical information necessary to use the collections.
