This page outlines the resources for Professor Bonds's Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movement Sophomore Seminar course. Below are the databases we covered in class as well as a handful of biographical resources for research into the backgrounds of your assigned authors.
Before delving into these specific databases, try searching the library's main search engine which simultaneously searches our physical catalog of books and multimedia items and over 200+ of our scholarly journal databases. Simply click on the "Search" tab at the top right of any library page or click the big green "Search" button in the middle of our Library homepage.
Important: How can I get an article? is the key.
Some databases have full text. For others, click on FindIt to determine if there are online links to the article; if it is in a journal the library subscribes to; or if you need to use Interlibrary Loan / Iliad - to obtain the article.
