African Studies Research Consultation

Anyone doing research on Africa can request a consultation with ASL librarians. Please call 617-353-3726, or email Beth Restrick (

From a distance, we can suggest research strategies, do some preliminary exploration of our resources, and suggest local libraries or other information resources for you to use.

We cannot ship books to you; to borrow books from this library, you will need to use interlibrary loan at your own institution or public library. Likewise, we cannot make extensive photocopies, summarize or interpret information for you.
