Welcome to the African American Theater & Performance Guide! I am looking forward to supporting you with your research projects.
Below are some quick links to help you get started with your research and information about the content on this guide. Please get in touch if you have any questions!
Getting Started with the Emory Libraries Website - https://libraries.emory.edu
For Students - check our resources specifically for undergraduate students at the libraries.
Library catalog - search here for e-books, print materials, and other resources at the library. See the Books tab for help with locating books
Library Databases - we have hundreds of databases where you can find articles, data, streaming videos, newspapers, archival materials, and more. See the Articles tab for more information and recommended databases.
The Emory Libraries provide a number of ways for your to get help with your research. Don't hesitate to get in touch with a question! We can help you locate materials, structure a search, develop your topic, evaluate materials, manage citations, and more.
Contact a Subject Librarian - our librarians specialize in different subjects and topic areas and can help with different aspects of the research process.
All librarians offer consultations on Zoom or can connect with you over email. On our Subject Librarian directory page, you will see a "Schedule a Consultation" link for each individual. You can click that to see their calendar and schedule a Zoom appointment with them at a convenient time.
Ask a Librarian - if you aren't sure who to contact directly, or you have a more general question, use our form on our Ask a Librarian page to get help.
Writing Center - if you need help with any aspect of the writing process, get in touch with the Emory Writing Center, who are also doing virtual appointments this summer.
ECDS - you can set up a consultation with ECDS to get help with a variety of digital projects, including working with data, digital humanities projects, online exhibits, or websites.
And if you are unsure who to ask or how to get help, you can always contact Erica Bruchko directly.
