The University of Iowa Libraries homepage is your gateway to library resources including the InfoHawk Catalog, journal article databases, electronic journals and books, reference materials, and many more web-based resources.
Smart Search (see widget below) is a tool for conveniently searching the InfoHawk Catalog (for books and videos) and a number of other digital resources. Note: Physically browsing in either Reference or the Main Stacks, such as in the DTs (African history) is another great search strategy. To see other call number ranges relevant to African Studies, see the Library of Congress Classification Outline.
Use the InfoHawk Catalog or Smart Search to look for travel narratives in the Main Library. You can also find electronic full-text of travel narratives published before 1923 using the Google Books advanced search screen.
To locate secondary literature on African societies, do keyword searches in the InfoHawk Catalog AND the recommended databases listed under the "Databases -- Finding Articles" tab above.
