African American Literature

About This Guide

This guide lists major library resources available at the the University of Cincinnati Libraries for researching African American literature.

Start Your Research with Summon

Summon is a simple and fast library search engine that helps you discover relevant information from the University of Cincinnati Library collections on any topic. It is the place to start your research in journal and newspaper articles, books, government documents, maps, music recordings, videos and more.

Using Summon as a starting point of your search is a great way to get a feel for the amount and types of sources you may find.

Summon also offers a quick way to find a known source if you know a full or partial title. However, remember that Summon does NOT include the entire content of the databases the libraries subscribe to.

For more help on how to use Summon, refer to our FAQ page.

Accessing Library Resources

If you are trying to access Summon or another licensed resource, such as a database, e-book or online video, you will be prompted to log in with your UC username and password. You may have to complete Duo Two-Factor Authentication as well.

These prompts can occur both on and off campus. Go to Online Access FAQ for more help.
