Information Center Acquires Africana-New
The Information Center has added Africana:
The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience to its
collection. W.E.B. DuBois originally conceived the idea for an
African equivalent to the Encyclopedia Britannica. Now, editors Henry
Louis Gates, Jr. and Kwame Anthony Appiah have made this idea a reality
by compiling over 3,500 entries on the cultural, historical, political,
and religious aspects of both African and African-American life into comprehensive
volume. Located at call number DT14.A37435 1999.

any suggestions regarding tutorials, please e-mail Joe Mitzenmacher(JMITZENM).
