Multicultural Resources in the Library   Leave a comment

Interested in reading the latest literature written by Arab American writers? Doing a paper on what it means to grow up as an Asian American? Looking for information on family and marriage in America? Do you need information for a speech on lesbian, gay , bisexual or transgender issues? Or maybe you just want to kick back and read some books from a variety of multicultural authors?

The Harper College Library strives to collect resources that reflect the diverse face of American culture and a number of our Research Guides are designed to point you to those materials in the Library that are written by or about persons from various multicultural backgrounds. Research Guides are available on the following:

Resources listed on any of these guides includes books (Reference and Mainstacks), e-books, DVDs, streaming videos, subscription databases, and relevant websites. More guides are soon to come!

Have you used  our online research guides yet?  We’ve got a research guide in a wide variety of topics including several guides that are specific to courses taught on campus.  Are you taking the English 102–Beat Generation class or Humanities 101 class? Or are you looking for resources in chemistry, fire science, or military history? There are individual research guides for each of these classes or topics.

Each research guide is designed to assist you in finding books or AV materials on your subject and also include search terms to use as you begin your search.  Relevant databases and websites are also highlighted.

Our latest research guide focuses on Hispanic/Latino/a resources that are available at the Harper College Library.  Also included in this guide are links to the Library’s subscription databases that are most useful for students taking multicultural classes.
