AFR 299: Caribbean Cultural Expressions & the Diaspora: Find Books


SuperSearch is a great place to start for journal articles, books and almost everything else the library has, in one easy to use interface.

For searching with more focus and precision, try one of the databases recommended on this guide.

If you are overwhelmed with too many results in SuperSearch, try a keyword search in the library catalog for a more focused search. The catalog only searches information about the book (such as the title, subject terms, table of contents, and brief summary), rather than the full text of the book itself, so the results are more focused.
