Primary Resources and Archival Collections: Index of Finding Guides

Index of Finding Guides to Primary Resources and Archival Collections

The index submenu to the right will take you to lists of BU’s finding guides on African primary resources or archival collections that can be found in the U.S. and internationally. These guides contain information about varied primary resources or archival collections on Africa, held by various institutions around the globe, as well as in Africa itself.

The link at the top right of the menu ‘African Primary Resources and Archival Collections held by BU‘ will take you to lists of African primary resource materials held by BU, ordered according to country or area.  These lists are intended to assist students in conducting primary source research using the libraries of Boston University. The materials listed are wide-ranging in their variety, but they are mostly either edited volumes of documents (most often, political in nature) compiled by later scholars from archival collections or first-hand accounts from various observers of Africa published as monographs.
