African-American Studies

SJSU Department of African-American Studies Faculty

Here are some suggestions and resources for faculty at SJSU. 

  • Put all course materials on reserve using the Course Reserve form. To offset the rising costs of ​textbooks, we encourage faculty to put all course materials on reserve so that all students have access. Once you submit your request, our team will find the most accessible version of the material, providing unlimited digital access if available. Our team will also place chapters or sections on your class Canvas page upon request. Read about the library's Affordable Learning Solutions which includes specific services for faculty. 
  • Schedule a custom library workshop for your class -- our specialty! No matter the level of class you're teaching, we can teach your students how to use library resources. Workshops can be general introductions to social science sources or tailored specifically to an assignment. Topics can include but are not limited to search strategies, peer-reviewed sources, citation format and practice, outline strategies, and fake news and propaganda. Request the date, time, and topic from your subject librarian. 
  • Send requests for specific items to be added to the collection to your subject librarian, listed to the left. We regularly develop the African-American section in our main collection, but we appreciate specific recommendations as well. Email your librarian or complete the Suggested Materials form.
  • We're here for you, too. Our librarians are dedicated to providing research assistance to all the SJSU community, so please don't hesitate to contact us. We can provide help for requests as simple as locating an article to as complex as designing your research study and creating data visualizations. 
  • Need something quickly? The reference desk, located on the 4th floor of King, has extended hours, and the librarian there can help you with immediate requests. Contact the reference desk by email, phone, or chat; drop-in and appointments available. 
  • Consider OER materials. Unhappy with the high cost of textbooks and interested in new solutions? Our Affordable Learning Solutions team is here to help you find Open Education Resource material for your classes. You may also be eligible for a TEAM grant to help you adapt OER. 
  • Submit your research to ScholarWorks, our institutional repository.  
  • Review more of the academic services available to faculty at King.
