Not all of our posters have been scanned, but all have been cataloged by subject. You can use NUsearch to search all of our Africana posters (scanned and unscanned) for specific topics, or just to browse the entire listings. 

In NUsearch, click the "Advanced Search" option. Then:

  1. Choose the "Africana Posters" option along the top of the screen.
  2. Choose the "Call number" option & Enter "960 post" if call number is known otherwise skip this step.
  3. If you are searching for a specific topic, add it in the additional field.
  4. Click "Search"

If your search results include already scanned posters, those records will have a link to view the poster online.
