This special collection of books and materials uniquely represents studies in Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Literature, Art, History, and Music that are characteristic of Black culture. These resources are designed and organized to support course offerings relating to people in America of African and Caribbean ancestry. It also exposes students to resources by and about Black Americans and their heritage. The circulating books are located in the Afro-American Center Annex, Room 268.

Some titles are more in demand than others. To ensure timely access, a copy of each title is shelved in a Restricted Collection (Room 271). Restricted books may be requested at the Service Desk. Restricted copies do not circulate and must be used in the Afro-American Center.

The Restricted Collection is available to patrons from 8:00 a.m. until 9:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. Friday; the Collection is closed on Saturday and open from 4:00 p.m. until 9:45 p.m. on Sunday.

A related reference collection and bound periodicals are also maintained in the Service Desk Area (Room 267) on open shelves. All restricted books, magazines, and journals must be used in the area. A photocopy machine is available and copies are $0.25 per page.
