Remote Library Resources & Services


Welcome to the African American and Diaspora Studies library guide.  The Vanderbilt Libraries have a wealth of materials that will be beneficial to anyone doing research on these subject areas. 

All of the resources found within this guide are available in one of the libraries on campus or online.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive resource - rather a good starting point for locally available resources for research and study.  Please feel free to make suggestions for additions to the various categories.


Essential Databases for African-American & Disapora Studies Research

Note: These databases are available through a Vanderbilt Libraries' subscription. If you are not a current Vanderbilt student, faculty or staff member, consult with your local library for comparable database options.
