The LibGuide provides information about resources carried by the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies for educators interested in teaching subjects related to the African continent. The many resources suggested in this guide provide basic information about African peoples, history, and culture that can help teachers craft creative and exciting African-Centered curricula. These materials may be utilized in various disciplines such as geography, literature, mathematics, biology,etc. Educators will find texts that illustrate Africa's importance in world history through political, social, cultural, and economic dimensions. The resources cover subjects such as urban and rural space, ethnic and racial diversity, literary expression, and many other cultural, scientific, and political contributions of Africa to the world.
You can usually submit your Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request for materials via your school library.
If your school library does not offer ILL services, you can submit your request via your local public library.
