New database for African Studies

The African Studies Companion is an annotated guide to print and electronic information sources in the field of African Studies. As in many other disciplines, there is now growing information overload on Africa and African studies. This makes the need for critical evaluation all the more important. Annotations in the African Studies Companion are evaluative rather than purely descriptive. This fully searchable electronic edition is regularly updated to provide maximum currency. The majority of listings identify primarily general, multidisciplinary sources of information, primarily those in English and relating to sub-Saharan Africa. One can search or browse all sections of the African Studies Companion individually. Sections include reference works, indexing and abstracting services, biographical sources, cartographic and GIS sources, the African press, journals and magazines, libraries and archives, a guide to using Google for African studies research and more.
