American Studies - Subject Guide - Introduction

This guide is intended to help you with basic research related to the field of American Studies. Within this guide you will find recommended resources that will lead you to books, articles, and primary sources. The vast majority of these resources are accessible online, while others are physically located in the Neil Hellman Library. 

Please feel free to get in touch if you need further assistance:

  • Visit the Reference Desk, located on the main floor of the Neil Hellman Library, during regular hours
  • Contact Young-In Kim, American Studies subject liaison, for one-on-one assistance
  • Chat with a librarian using our Ask Us 24/7 service

 All-Knight Search is a tool that allows you access to many of the library's resources through a single interface. Search results can be broad and will generally include articles, e-books, books held in the library, DVD's, and much more. Initial search results may be overwhelming but you can narrow them by using the options under the "Refine Results" column to the left of the results. Go to the Databases page for additional options, including more subject specific databases.
