Suggested Prerequisite Modules:

  1. Library Web Page

Recommended Exercises:

  1. Have students select a topic related to African American History.  It may be beneficial to allow them to look over the database to help them choose a topic.
    • What is your topic?
    • Provide three bibligraphic entries for items you've found in the African American History Online database.  My suggestion is to ask for one primary source, one mecia (audio/video) source, and one article.

Shelton State Libraries subscribes to African American History Online as an academic resource and to provide students with materials related to our mission as an HBCU.  From on campus, use of African American History Online is seamless.  If you need to access this database from off campus, please email a librarian from your Shelton State email account with your request.  Your email should include your MyShelton number.  Or you can stop by the library and we will give you access.
