Black History Resources at UO Libraries

Research Guides

A great "first stop" for any research project, these guides contain a wealth of librarian-reccommended primary and secondary sources.

Special Collections and University Archives

The archives hold a variety of materials related to Black history, and in 2017 the archivists' Documenting UO History Project will be focused on the legacy of African-American experience at our university. Updates and in-depth articles are regularly published to SCUA's blog, Unbound.

Library Exhibits

Winter 2017 exhibitions in two of our libraries highlight different aspects of Black history and experience.
